Open Quote painfully lacking in effective and approachable leadership. little encouragement in the areas of parent/teacher collaboration and community building. school safety agents are beyond unfriendly and rude. most teachers and staff are great but overall school environment is not welcoming. please do your research before placing your child into this school.

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.
