Open Quote Wonderful school with excellent arts and music program. I am not sure of the experience of the previous poster but if asked, many parent will tell you that the principal is very responsive and open to change. The school is small and has a wonderful sense of family. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is not responsive to parents, and lacks in several areas. They do not communicate effectively on children's progress in the classroom, or developments in the school. They also do not adequately address behavioral problems and disruptions in the class, leaving physically aggressive and disruptive children in the classroom. The principal is condescending and rude, and is not open to parents concerns or critiques about the school. The school would have potential if they were less short sighted and would address issues that parents raise. I would not recommend this school. We, along with several other families, will not be returning next year. 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.
