Open Quote If you are thinking of sending your little ones to our (I am a parent) school , have a look at this petition http://www.thepetitionsite.com/306/933/496/demand-an-independent-investigation-into-the-high-attrition-rate-of-lower-school-faculty-at-scpa/ . There is a call for an independent investigation into the administration. You can look at the comments to get a good idea of the issues. If you are concerned about this, please sign the petition and let them know that as a perspective parent, you are concerned about this and would like to see it corrected. The school has been and can be a great school, but right now it has some issues that need to be addressed before I can recommend you trusting your children to it. Close Quote

Open Quote I am so happy that my son attends St. Croix Prep's lower school. Every year, the school gets better and better! The teachers are top-notch, and the administration cares about my child. My child is getting a private school education in a public school setting. 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.
