Open Quote This is one of the worse schools in world. The Teachers don't teach they babysit. Most of them don't have gifted licenses and spend most of their workday studying for test and bettering themselves. They are "facilitating" but failed to read the personalized learning plan that says you are to "instruct" which means teach. Sounds like these facilitators have reading comprehension problem.

Open Quote Quality of teacher/staff has diminished. Does not live up to the hype that parents and staff spoke about during the Open House. Academic scores have dropped as well. Close Quote

Open Quote Villa Heights is an excellent school. It is a learning immersion//talent development (gifted) magnet. The staff is nurturing and excellent at their job. Both my children have done very well in this school. 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.
