Open Quote My child has been in this school for five years, since kindergarten. There are many pros and cons to this school.
Pros
- most teachers show concern for the welfare of their students and are friendly and approachable
- school has non-academic classes, such as arts, music, and gym available to all students of all grades
Cons
- office staff is about as unfriendly as it gets; they ignore you when you walk in and then act like you disrupted them from something important
- leadership/mgmt is terrible; when all's well, they are sweet; when issues are brought to their attention, they try to sweep it under the rug and pretend nothing happened.
- not all teachers are properly licensed for what they are teaching; ie. g&t, special ed, etc
- parent coordinators switch every other year; the newest one speaks to parents very loudly as if we were all deaf or as if we were kids Close Quote

Open Quote Indoctrination Mill, run by a very unprofessional principal. A handful of veteran teachers are great, but they're quickly overshadowed by poor academia and curriculum. Most teachers are poorly trained with little experience. Avoid attendance at all costs (unless of course you just need a day care). 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.
