Open Quote I attended this school a long time ago and I find that they strive to maintain a high standard. The provide excellent service to the students in need and their education can be described as outstanding. They achieve more than what they deserve and should be proclaimed a blue ribbon school. Check out how well they achieve in the MSA. Each day they achieve a higher status. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
