Open Quote Though this school has a high number of free and reduce lunch, the students meet expected growth in testing. The staff is very loving and spends a lot of time with students. They have an innovative leadership program which started here and is spreading to other schools. They strongly encourage parent involvement and sincerely focus on the individual needs of students. Don't let the numbers discourage you because there is more to learning than just testing. This school has it! 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.
