Open Quote I have to agree with the previous comment posted. The focus is not on the students AT ALL! They could careless about the failing grades. The students have no foundation in math, reading, or writing. Most of these kids can barely spell and with 2 teachers in a class "they do not have time to check homework"(according to the principal). They ignore you if you question their curriculum or bring up valid points such as the massive failing grades and lack of summer school initiative. All they care about is obtaining their next permit and their new building. They do not teach the students; they "guide" the students through learning because their motto is children should be independent and responsible for themselves. There is little classroom management and barely any structure. This school does not live up to any of the expectations it claims to have. The saddest part is no one in a position of authority cares. I'm SO GLAD I took my child out of this school.
If you don't mind coming home from work and picking up where the teachers constantly fall short then this is the perfect place for you. However, if you are a parent who is looking for a school where your child(ren) will actually learn something and have a great chance at succeeding in this world DO NOT PLACE THEM HERE!!!

Open Quote Don't do it! Let your child or children go to a public school or a private school. The school is not the problem nor is the children it's the managements of this school I had to leave this school as a teacher in fear of so...many children failing. I wish they will reach a place in their heads & see how many children are suffering with low grades every child in the 2nd & 3rd grade failed. There is no mandatory summer classes offered. And worse of all a the children are not learning Fundamental math or reading. The children can't spell, write,pronoun. This dream has turned more into a nightmare of failure. The managements concern is about obtain their own building. And getting their application for a new year renewed. If you are thinking you would like to place your child in this school speak with the parnets of this school & ask them about what you just read, they will tell you the truth. 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.
