Open Quote My step daughter started here in kindergarten and is now in 2nd grade. The teachers are wonderful and very supportive to her needs. She gets home from school and works on her assignments. She started reading at the beginning of this school year and is always expanding her vocabulary. I am proud to say this school still says the pledge of allegiance. And, the school sends homework home for the summer break so the children maintain what they’ve learned. The teachers will e-mail or call my house if she missed an assignment. They'll even call when an important project is due soon. The school also has different ways to keep parents involved. 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.
