Open Quote I went to this school years ago and looking back to my experience I hated it. teachers were racist and prefered white students over other races. They not only didn't know how to do their job but were very rude. As a teacher, it is your job to make students feel welcomed and safe but they failed to do so.Going to school was something I dreaded and hated when I was young and that was because of my teachers.

Open Quote This school is probably the worst school I've ever had the displeasure to be in. The administration staff is about as qualified as their students to run a school. The principal, has a terrible temper, and is very unjust in all situations. The assistant principal is brash and irrational in all her decision making skills. These two run the school as if they were high school besties and this was their stomping ground. I would not recommend sending your child here, as the school is wildly unfit to meet their needs. I wouldn't recommend working here, as the administration, can't manage their staff or work with anyone in a productive manner. They make decisions based on assumptions and their "I'm in charge and you aren't" mentality is the most toxic of any school I've ever been to. How such incompetent, negligent, power hungry, and down right crude people came to be administrative staff is beyond me. Do not come to this school to work, and do not send your child to this school. They are below average in everything they do, and will do nothing to benefit their staff, or their community. The only way this school could possibly become better, is if the administration staff is terminated and replaced. I would rate this school and administrative staff with a U. 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.
