Open Quote We moved here last August, & have found the administration & teachers to be excellent! Close Quote

Open Quote Teachers and staff are downright mean to the students. It is sad that the bullies in the school are the teachers and staff. The principal is uneducated and unable to communicate in an effective manner. They teach to the test instead of actually educating our students. IF your child has any kind of learning needs you need to run. There are several teachers that clearly need to retire, or find a new field of work as they are clearly burnt out. I feel bad for the students because these are supposed to be fun years of their schooling and instead they are treated like they are prisoners. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is ranked very high because of good test scores. That simply means they have gotten the majority of students up to just barely grade level. Those students that are high achievers or smarter than average are left to languish. This school does nothing for them. If you have a high achiever, find a private school or home school because at this school, your child will be dumbed down to average and if he or she does not fall in line, he or she will be branded as a student with poor behavior due to sheer boredom. This has been our experience and when the teachers are approached, they become extremely defensive. They won't meet with you and if you try to talk to the principle you are trying to climb a wall because she doesn't support parents, only her teachers. You are just stuck with no where to turn.

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.
