Open Quote This school is not very parent friendly, they do not contact parents about things that happen in the school, including children being physically attacked. Bullying is terrible. It barely functions as a school. Multiple reports of physical bullying and the bully's are still allowed to go into the school and continue to torment other children.The teachers do not let you know about grades or student progress. It's like pulling teeth to get anyone to return your phone call. 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.
