Open Quote I have been very pleased that my kids are attending this school. Admittedly my children are interested in the STEM fields so they fit in really well at this school. The school is small and the faculty and staff know the kids really well. I feel that my kids are safer and less likely to be bullied compared to much bigger high schools. The curriculum is quite rigid so a student who is not into science and math will probably have a hard time in this school. The limited course offerings and choices for electives may be off putting for some students and parents but for us this is good since the students are less confused about what classes to take and are assured of a challenging curriculum. I also appreciate that these classes are very hands-on. There is less emphasis on AP classes and catering to standardized test. In exchange for this the students get the chance to enroll in interesting and challenging classes on their area of concentration. There is also an opportunity for the students to do an internship and their own research via the Executive Experience which is unheard of in other schools. The areas of concentration are on Biology, Engineering, Environmental Science and Computers. I do wish that there could be more offerings on languages other than Spanish. 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.
