Open Quote While the idea is great, the implementation and how it is run is saddening and ineffective. The students that have been consistently attending the school or that have a connection in the admin are rarely punished no matter the offense. However, if you are new or are have no connection than you do not mean anything to them. They will tell you the school is a business and the amount of money and time required by parents is where that is seen the most. My child’s education suffers because of the students that have behavioral issues. The one’s that throw tantrums and that are continuously interrupting class. And the saddest part is nothing is being taken care of on the admin level. I am always asked to take care of it and to stand beside my son’s teacher. Where’s admin? I don’t understand why my child’s education has to suffer in order for them to make their money and keep disrespectful students there. Based on what my son has told me I am very disappointed and appalled. But what do they do when I ask them? They come up with a lame excuse and send me away. No parent should send their child to this school unless you want their education to suffer at the hands of another student. Teachers are amazing and miracle workers but their hard work does not shine through the misbehaviors and those few students that run each room. If you want a successful student I would highly recommend you sending them anywhere but to this school. Close Quote

Open Quote I absolutely love this school. My child no longer attends here because we had to move but the improvement I seen in my child was phenomenal . I can’t wait to see where this school goes in the future. For where it’s located it’s something different and not seen in the area. I honestly feel as if they weren’t in this small town they would thrive so much more. Nonetheless I wish them the best. 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.
