Open Quote I attended school there when it was a grammar and high school. My nieces attended school there when it was just elementary, and one later worked there in the office. Good school, good area. Close Quote

Open Quote eh- i've not been too impressed. the school manages to test out pretty well with eogs, but there are definitely shortcomings. half the staff seem unfriendly and unmotivated, the facilities are cluttered, disorganized and filthy and there is only a small group of parents who seem to run the show without allowing much room for newcomers to contribute. hopefully, the new principal can insist on a higher level of professionalism, cleanliness and more parental involvement from underrepresented populations.

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.
