Open Quote The staff at the school must change its attitude especially the front office. Felt like entering the 3rd world government facility where usual attitude is "you are not welcomed here". No customer orientated culture whatsoever. We were barely greeted by the secretary. The answers were so rigid we had to push for additional information. Close Quote

Open Quote My son love the school and his Kindergarten teacher was sooo amazing. I like the way the administration office work especially after moved back to the permanent location. The school principal is great and professional. When I first met her, my son has to start school with a few week delay because of his bad injury at that time. The principal was very helpful on making some arrangement for my son to be confortable and welcoming. Good school, great teachers. 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.
