Open Quote I think that this school as a whole is wonderful. However, the middle school Dean is an abomination and should not be allowed to influence students in any way. Her attire is mostly inapropriate for an educational building and she has a very foul mouth with the middle school students. Complaints have been made about her behavior but nothing has been done by the leaders of the school and the bad influence on the students continues. It is sad that such a good school must be so poorly represented in this way. 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.
