Open Quote The best public school in RTP! My child was there all five years and I, a very involved in my child's education parent, saw how wonderful the teachers, staff, and administration of this school are. The PTA is strong, too and it is also an important factor for the school's success. Parents tutor, help teachers, create events for the kids but they are not required to do so. Highly recommend this school. Close Quote

Open Quote I find this school to be a really good school. Like any school you have good teachers and you have bad teacher. My child was having issues with reading and worked with us. Now he is reading at an above average level and provides great motivation for continue success. They expect parents to help their child academically. I have seen parents expect all their child’s academic needs to be resolved during schools hours. There will be a rule awaking. The administration is every helpful to fine resources if you get a bad teacher. Our second year at the school we had a bad teacher and met with the principle to work on a plan to get what my child needed. You will not like this school if you are not an involved parent with your child education. They have parental expectations. 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.
