Open Quote I'm giving 2 stars for now, I may change it as the year goes on( hopefully with more stars). With it being a smaller school you'd expect a little more communication between parents and teachers but as of now I can honestly say the only communication I've had has been during conferences. I'm disappointed in this aspect, because I hear things from my kids that I would think a teacher would contact me about. I seen some negative reviews regarding lunches and I must say I agree. They're terrible and expensive! We'll see how the year pans out. I have no problem going back to public school. I really had no problem there, just liked the idea of smaller classes 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.
