Open Quote Disappointed in they do not deliver on the stated mission they profess to. Not all kids are treated equal. The highest preforming kids are very highly regarded and they find ways of eliminating those they do not preform to their sought after test scores... In the 5 years we were there, I saw several kids that did poorly and were targeted as they only have to pass 80% of the students (as per an educator employed there.) Any school will do well when the children are prepped for the meap tests which they spend weeks doing.
The saddest part is that the kids that are "problems" and get kicked out of public schools are ending up there. Most have an IEP and it ties the hands of the Admin. to effectively deal with them. Would have been better if I did not have inside info to the goings on there and see what I saw. Close Quote

Open Quote Great staff, very involved with the children. I am moving due to my job, and trying to find a school as good as Holly Academy for my two boys. It's not easy. 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.
