Open Quote Ethnicity wise..the majority of this school is white. Therefore, resulting in students from alternative ethnicities, to feel secluded from the school. White skin is favored here.
-My daughter attends this school and we are irish but her best friend is of a different ethnicity and I feel empathetic towards how she told me she feels. 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.
