Open Quote This school is dangerous and they cover up bullying. My child went there from Prek to 5th grade. He just got into a middle school down the road. I wish I would have transferred him earlier. Instead of coming home depressed he now comes home happy and excited about learning. 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.
