Open Quote I love this school. I love the diversity of the students and the dedication of the staff. It may be a title one school but it is a strong school, with creative, passionate teachers doing amazing things with limited resources. Close Quote

Open Quote This school need work. I have to take my child out and find her a different school. one that actually cares about there education. My daughter is so far behind in math that I have to hire a tutor to help her get caught up. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! Close Quote

Open Quote I had two kids at this school I had to take one out for home school until I found him a better school. My other kid still goes but not next year she will be doing open enrollment. If you are thinking of putting your child here you should bang your head on the wall three times maybe will knock some sense into you. Unless English is your second language 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.
