Open Quote This is a small school with limited resources. The administration is completely fickle when it comes to the expectations of student behavior and the consequences of inappropriate actions by changing the rules as needed. Favoritism and discrimination is very prevalent among the leaders of the school. They are more concerned about bringing in money than the well being of their students, which is why tuition increases every year. The core cirriculum classes are taught well, however, if you are looking to expand your children's interests in non-core related material, this school is not for you. They do not have the resources to offer a class for all students. My advice, enroll your child in the Frederick County Public school system, which has been ranked #5 in Maryland! 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.
