Open Quote I have been associated with the school for many years, and I would say that it used to be a wonderful public school filled with creative teachers. The staff has changed quite a bit in the last few years however. Also, I find that for lower socioeconomic students, it provides good support, but for students seeking an "experiential" education, very little of the old ways still apply. If you have an average to above average child, I would look elsewhere. 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.
