Open Quote They offer a wide variety of options for all learning styles. The problem that they face is that they are the 'center' of the school district and all are welcome. Some children that have had difficult time in other schools for a vide variety of reasons are sent here. I believe that the rating of 3 stars was a bit low. 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.
