Open Quote This school has a really nice vibe when you walk in. You can tell the teachers really care about their students. It has some unique challenges but most of the kids seem really happy and the staff is always positive. The principals seem really cool too, they have a great rapport with the kids and parents 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.
