Open Quote This is one of the better neighborhood schools. It is like a hidden treasure. The school offers art, music, and computer classes to all students as well as instrumental music to many. There is gifted support and extracurricular club activities. The school does not have a parent group which is one of its down falls, but there are a few parents who take an active interest and do what they can to make things better. 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.
