Open Quote I think this one excellent school, my daughter came to this school in november of her 4th grade year. I was a little nervous concidering the work was alot harder. I spoke to her teacher and explained to her, that my daughters last school never did any of this work or even expected certain things. She assurred me not to worry and they would do everything that they could to help her. I have to say they were true to their word, my daughter did great and she received 3 in her math and 3 in her ELA and a 4 on her state science test. I am proud not only of my daugher because she used the tools and education they gave her to do great, but with the teachers and the dedication they have for the children. I also have to say the principle and vice principle are fanstic and they are very welcoming. 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.
