Open Quote If I could give 1/2 a star I would. My son currently attends this school and hopefully will not next year. The high enrollment of non-English speaking children is having an impact on my child's education and social development. It is difficult for children of a certain age to engage with other child that do not speak the same language. The administration does nothing to foster interaction between the students. They do have many events for parents/students but most are geared towards helping kids catch up in their learning. Close Quote

Open Quote The homework at this school is "reading everyday for 20 minutes" . No wonder the test scores are falling down. I feel sorry for the kids who go there. 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.
