Open Quote This school has not been the same since the principal Mr.Bernardo has retired. Mr Bernardo worked over 20+ years in this school and his leadership created an atmosphere of opportunity and learning, professionalism and excellence. Since his departure many of the programs has swindled. Senior trip program halted. Senior trip consisted of traveling with our senior students to other countries such as France, japan etc. His presence, leadership is felt in a variety of ways. From staff to the code of ethics to afterschool programs and extra activities that made this school great in my opinion is gone. Lack of communication is huge. Administrative staff are caught gossiping and interacting with parents in unprofessional manner. Ethics are gone in terms of how the school communicates with parents. I dislike the school leadership today and am applying to charter schools for my children because its not pleasant dealing with any of them. They are disconnected, gossips and just not a nurturing feel I get from the environment. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is awesome. They do their very best at making sure every child is taken care of and leaves with the correct eduactional capabilities and morals that they need to succeed in life. It is definitely recommended to those who live in the area and those who want their child to gain an excellent education. 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.
