Open Quote Super woke school. They are only concerned about furthering their agenda.
This is a school of great test takers that goes hand in hand with property values. Don’t be fooled into thinking this makes for a great school.
I have zero confidence in this school. 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.
