Open Quote Excellant school! The principals and teachers really care about their students. If a student is struggling, they make every effort to get extra help for those students. I would highly recommend this school to anyone moving into the area. They have a high AYP score, and you can really tell they care about the kids. 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.
