Open Quote I went to this school a couple years ago. Let me tell you, try to find any other school for your child to go to. I was in fifth grade, it seemed to me that the teachers passed everyone because they didn't want to deal with those kids anymore. But I wouldn't blame them. Horrible school. Okay teachers. Horrible students. The school was dirty and the bathroom was a place where many fights took place. I was glad I only had to go there for one year because I wouldn't be able to handle that school. Save your child from the bullying at this school and choose ANY OTHER SCHOOL than this one. 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.
