Open Quote If I could choose to not give a star I would do that. Worst choice I've ever made in a school. If you have a child with an IEP do not choose this school. Numerous times I've asked for help from the school for resources- not once was I provided anything. I've never had such a poor relationship with my child's school ever! So heartbreaking.

Open Quote My daughter, although received high marks in school, was ill prepared for middle school. I highly regret sending her there. Close Quote

Open Quote The staff is warm and cares deeply about their students. The students are taught to respect one another. On the first day of school, they are informed what is expected of them and there will be consequences if they don't follow the rules. As a grandmother, I wished that there were schools like this when our boys were young. Keep up the good work. 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.
