Open Quote The biggest strength of this school is it's diverse student population. It also has a great athletic program. Many of the students at this school face unbelievable hardships in their lives, and sometimes those hardships show up at school. Students must learn to coexist with other kids who are of different races, religions, and economic backgrounds than their own. This school provides a unique learning experience and I plan to send my own children here. 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.
