Open Quote I have 3 children at this school. It has been a difficult year with COVID, what has made it easier has been the staff at the school. They work long hours and go beyond just providing lessons for the kids. The principals visited our home to help us get our kids logged on when school started. They made sure we had school supplies. They always posted community resources for food and clothes on Class Dojo. If the kids were absent someone always called to see how they could help get the kids in their Zoom class. We get surveys asking for our opinions on how to make the school better. It is hard to find a perfect school in an affordable area, and while Commons Lane is not perfect, they work hard at getting better. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is terrible for home owners. The parents and school staff as well as even the crossing guards park on lawns and destroy it. 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.
