Open Quote This school is equip with teachers who go above and beyond to get students ahead in their educations. These low ratings are not at all doing teachers justice. I am a product of this school and have recognized that my strong math and writing background all was instilled here. I attend a top 50 university and achieved an A in my calculus class. In the end, it all goes back to your foundations. This school definitely gave me a strong foundation in every subject and I will forever be grateful for that. 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.
