Open Quote My son started Kindergarten there this year and we have had a wonderful experience. The staff are very personable and professional. They truely want every student to suceed. My son needed extra help for his reading and as soon as he started the reading recovery program we noticed a big difference. I would recommend this school to everyone. It is exceptional and I couldnt think of a better place for my son. I cannot wait to send my daughter in 2 years because I know that she will have so many opportunities to suceed!!!!! 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.
