Open Quote I don't understand why this school has been favorably rated. The school administration discourage parents to be involved in school, other than wanting PTSA's continuous monetary support for their programs. Little to none after school activities, also thanks to the school administrators' attitude. You basically don't see any teacher show up at PTSA sponsored activities. As the result, there is barely any parents' involvement in the school. The good test scores mostly can be attributable to the neighborhood composition, which are mostly with highly educated parents.

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.
