Open Quote My daughters have worked with quality teachers. While there have been some bumps in the road, I have also seen my kids continue to improve. With the New Tech implementation, there have been noticeable improvements to scores and my daughters' understanding of the material. Look forward to the next school year (2019-2020). 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.
