Open Quote Not impressed so far. Child's first year there. On open house day in August 2012, the event appeared to be very disorganized. School didn't have paperwork or forms ready. Met some of my child's teachers: My opinion, not so friendly or professional. One teacher looked at my retired military hat gave me a dirty look and seemed to talk down to me when I asked a simple question pertaining to my child's class. In the beginning of the school year in one of my child's classes she was told that the problems in Our Country was George Bush's fault. Really? Blame Bush politics in Middle School? I get the impression that the school has a liberal agenda and is a very Liberal leaning school. I will be monitoring them closely through out the school year. I will post another update mid-year. Military families keep an eye on what your children are being taught and how you are treated. 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.
