Open Quote The Principal, Guidance Counselor, Secretary and Maintenance Staff are Excellent! Love the Arts and Music Teachers too! This year our teacher gets a 5 star rating! Best in 3 years. But former teacher would have received 3 of 5 stars. The school needs funding to hire a more qualified nurse assistant. There is no school nurse and the nurse is shared from several schools which is frightening when your child has a condition. Excellent playground! School also needs funding to expand the school since there are 3 portable classrooms and many of these have been there for over 20 years. 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.
