Open Quote This school suffers from severely poor leadership and an utter lack of school culture. The administration is inconsistent in dealing with students and the teachers receive zero disciplinary support. As a result, the classroom environment for most students does not promote any kind of learning. PSSA scores are shamefully low, and the teacher turnover rate is extremely high (for good reason). As a parent, you are seeking out a charter school because you care about your child. Please choose another 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.
