Open Quote Love the school! Love the staff! High expectations and great teaching/learning are the norm. The teachers, principal and assistant principals are very helpful and caring. Close Quote

Open Quote I have to say that the school is not the same since Mr. Young left. He was very involved in the school and really got to know the kids and cared about what happened to them. In turn the kids really wanted to do better and were respectful of each other as well as the staff. Now you can ask many of the students and they may not even know who the principal is or what she looks like. Even the kids will tell you school is not the same. You will also notice a difference in how the kids treat the staff, many more are disrespectful because they know they will not get in trouble. There have been a couple of incidents where I have heard of kids misbehaving (fighting, dressing improperly, disrespecting teachers and bullying) and they got off with "you know better and don't do that again". The kids are not held responsible and do not receive the punishment according to the offense. WE MISS YOU MR. YOUNG!!!! 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.
