Open Quote This is by far the best school in the district. The principal, vice principal and teachers far exceed expectations. The school is like one big family. Teaching is done in a very positive atmosphere. The kids love going to school!I wish it could be K-12! 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.
