Open Quote Great students. Excellent administration that has a balance between discipline and fun for students. Good parent connections. Traffic bad. Very engaged teachers that care about their students. I am proud to have a son that attends and enjoys the challenges put before him each day. The administration puts a lot of time in to awarding good achievements and behaviors for the students.

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.
