Open Quote Great school - great teachers and very amazing atmosphere! Close Quote

Open Quote The teachers at this school are exceptional, only limited by the disorganized, willfully noncommunicative so called administrators. This school does not facilitate the use of weekly spelling/vocabulary exams or the use of the accelerated reader program, both of which I find critical to the success of young children (with regards to standardized testing). The administration has multiple issues, beginning with miscommunication, hostility towards parent(s) whom express concern/dissent with their policies and a principal who finds it inconvenient to even speak with students's parents by phone when requested. This school needs an administrative overhaul, so that those who "run" the school are just as efficient as the teachers whom the school employs. 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.
