Open Quote My daughter is starting her 3rd year there and she is doing very well. The principal is very involved in the school and the teachers are great. The lunch Could be better and the after school program could use some better care givers but I am glad that there’s one. Overall I am happy with this school. 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.
