Open Quote when the 5th grade education is focused on preparation for middle school, there is a problem. Close Quote

Open Quote Please do not send your child if she/he is academically advanced ("gifted", etc.) but has any other type of impediment or impairment. This school will just meet their minimum requirement of insuring that your child is "average". 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.
