Open Quote Cannot deal with special needs of high IQ kids, look for info on lawsuit 2017. We left for a school that understands high IQ kids' needs and are much happier. Close Quote

Open Quote Every few weeks our son would come home with a paper from the teacher "reminding parents" that children need 9+ hours of sleep, and that hitting is not accepted. my son was in kindergarten and the stories he came home with are sick. Kids choking other kids, pushing hitting. I am NOT sending my son there for 1st grade. 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.
