Open Quote My daughter has been attending this school for two years. We absolutely love it. The staff is warm and caring and enthusiastic and the academics are strong. Very good parent/teacher communication. Wonderful music and dance programs. Great museum partnerships. They are getting a state of the art technology center.
This is a great school! Close Quote

Open Quote Don't be fooled. Remember never judge a book by its cover. Our last year's scores do not do us justice. The work we do in our school is amazing. Scores have already improved in the upcoming year. All grades PreK through 8 use inquiry based and project based learning connecting everything to the real world instead of some arbitrary textbook. We have fabulous partnerships with Studio in a School, Lincoln Center Institute, Border Crossers, and more. We recently won a Magnet Grant, which will take our already amazing school and take it to the next level. We have been renamed the Museum Magnet School for Inquiry, Innovation and Imagination. Our excellent and well educated Master Teachers will be able to integrate more museum experiences and aesthetic education into the core curriculum. We are worth taking a look at. 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.
