Open Quote Great school with great caring teachers. Any issues the teachers are willing to meet with you to solve the problem. The administrators are accessible and will meet with you if they do not have a scheduled meeting. They will call or email you to make sure they touch base with you. I love the open door policy.

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.
