Open Quote This is a private school funded by tax dollars in the skin of a public school. You ask yourself why they rate so good? Its because if your child needs extra help and they belive that they will bring their test scores down they will find a way to get your child out of the school and into another. The school only cares about test scores and the leadership shows it. 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.
