Open Quote Math and science programs are slowed down to the point where it's useless for any advanced students. You will need to pay for outside tutoring if you go to this school, just your child has a chance to get in to a good high school. Close Quote

Open Quote My son has been at this school since preK (right now he is 10) - and he loves it! It's a wonderful school with great teachers and a most excellent principal. The kids feel safe and happy there. 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.
