Open Quote Hands on learning, very involved parent community. Great school Close Quote

Open Quote Creative Science School is truly an amazing place for students. The staff and teachers are intelligent and warm. They deeply care about the students. The parents are very involved. There are no volunteer requirements but parent involvement is an essential piece of why this schools works. The program has been around for 30 years and the curriculum is Piaget/Constructivism. The “science” in the school name comes from implementing the scientific method in the classroom. This is not a science thematic school. Our teachers use the Storyline Method to present constructivist theory in a practical form. Learning is built around units and students work together to hypothesize, test, conclude and report. The school also uses the program MindUp; which nurtures optimism and happiness in the classroom, helps eliminate bullying and aggression, increases empathy and compassion, while resolving peer conflicts. My son loves the peace MindUp brings to his day. Close Quote

Open Quote MY SON IS A SEVEN GRADER NOW, HE WAS TWO YEARS BEHIND ON MATH SO HAVE TO PAY FOR TUTORING, SO THAT HE WILL BE AT GRADE LEVEL. I DON'T FEEL LIKE THIS SCHOOL IS TEACHING THE RIGHT SUBJECTS AND I'M SURE I AM NOT THE ONLY PARENT THAT THINK THAT. I WILL TRANSFER MY SON TO DEFERENCE SCHOOL ALONG WITH SOME OTHER PARENTS. DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE BRINGING YOUR KIDS TO THIS SCHOOL. 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.
