Open Quote The administration at the school treats parents very poorly. There is no meaningful communication. While some of the teachers are good and care, they are left with an inadequate curriculum. If you child is fine and does need any extra help they will probably do OK here but if your child falls outside of the norm good luck getting an education. 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.
