Open Quote i have had 3 children go there. they have an excellent music and AP program. Plenty of electives. Foreign exchange trips. Dual enrollment college programs. Excellent sports and a robust guidance office for college admission. They have Votech training and advanced honors placement. Each year many students receive scholarships and all major colleges stop by and tour the school. One of my children performed at Disney world, another went to Europe as a Student ambassador. My youngest is going to Spain this Summer while her sister is graduating Rutgers on the Dean's list and less than 6500 in debt even though we did not qualify for Pell. 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.
