Open Quote It's been a great experience for my child thus far. By the end of PK he had learned as much as the average first grader. Close Quote

Open Quote When I used to go to this school as a child I used to get picked on all the time always by the same 3 girls who happened to be sisters. I would get beat up and chocked right outside the school. My mother would have many meetings with the principal and not once was something done. Then the day that I finally slapped a girl, I got put on a sticker chart by the principal. I personally am not racist, I love everyone the same. However when I went to this school it was mostly black students. I was white. The girls who picked on me were black and so was the principal, and I honestly think it had to do with racism on their part and that's why nothing was ever done for me. I went to that school all the way from pre k to 5th grade and nothing was ever done.
Also I did not have the perfect mother growing up and I would miss SO MUCH school and never did they question my mother about why I wasn't going to school. When I did go to school I would have holes in my clothes and not once did anyone try to help me. I hated this school so much that I would fake being sick so I wouldn't have to go. It's been about 10 years since I graduated from this school so things very well could have changed since then, but there's also a possibility they haven't. I will never send my children there regardless. Just because of the bad experience I had. Good luck!!! 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.
