Open Quote Not a good school if you child has ADHD. Principal and staff all refused to do 504/IEP evaluation on my child despite having a well-documented medical diagnosis and history of medication/treatment, not to mention its the LAW. Instead of helping my child, the school only decided to discipline my child repeatedly for behaviors attributed to ADHD and anxiety. They would not even allow my child to see the school social worker, but the student file shows a "history" of behavior issues. They set my child up to fail and didn't want to be bothered with help or assistance to get my student on a successful path. They did nothing to help my child. My child was also continually bullied because of having ADHD and all the discipline my child received. But they have a "Zero Tolerance" policy for bullying?? What a crock! After attending this school, my child completely hated going to school. Finally pulled my child out of this school and moved to another....my child is doing MUCH better, at a school that actually cares and responds with requests for 504/IEP and help with ADHD. I would caution ALL parents about sending their children to this school. Charter Schools are not all they claim to be...at least not this one. 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.
