Open Quote I attended this school from the 1st to the 5th grade and it was my absolute favorite school, and my best years of child hood. I have nothing but fond memories of my time here. All of the teachers were kind, caring and helpful. All of the classes we took were a learning experience and also fun. I LOVED this school and I made many great friends here. I am now 31 and would love to go back! Such a great school! Close Quote

Open Quote I completely agree with the other post listed here. Yes, kids are pushed and there is no thinking outside the box. Overcrowding leaves little room for kids who don't fit in the one size fits all format. The teachers are mixed bag. Some are outstanding, but others range from average to awful. We are happy to be moving on to middle school after our 5th grade experience. The teacher was unfit and lashed out and belittled the students who were not her favorites. She has been moved from grade to grade, but tenure has kept her there for too long. The parent body is great and the community strong. Close Quote

Open Quote It is a very traditional academic school that bulldozes children from the time they are in kindergarten so that they read and write pronto. The pressure is definitely on as part of the common core. The school has a mixed bag of teachers, which come from good training programs but that are obviously overwhelmed by the overcrowding. Some of them are relatively inexperienced. The movement teacher in the lower levels is not well liked and should really be replaced. Overall the high scores this school has is in a big part the reflection of the student body it serves, which consists of children that come from families holding higher expectations. The method through which they teach is rigorous but not always effective. PT is strong. 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.
