Open Quote About a year ago or so, the leadership changed for the worse. The old principal had a heart and competence. The substitute principal, who should have never been hired in as full-time, lacks compassion and competence. Hopefully, this principal will retire or be removed soon. Some great teachers here, but a few who are immature and lacking competence and a heart as well. 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.
