Open Quote The school is great, and the teachers are great.
The reason I gave the school 4 starts (not 5) is because
for some reason (must be politics, not related to the school
itself), they've changed 4 principals in 2 years now.
And that just does not seem to be right.
Again, may have nothing to do with the school. 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.
