Open Quote Great school in a solid district. My general view is there are many who CARE about the quality of education and their students. They offer an amazing instrumental music program throughout the district beginning in 3rd grade but be warned when you get to the High School to seek instrumental music lessons from outside the building.

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.
