Open Quote Devoted staff. This school is outdated & unable to handle some of the most basic needs of students. While the staff is devoted to the kids they have few resources. Lack of parental involvement, in some cases, detracts from overall learning experiences for some with frequent disciplinary issues needing attention. Curricula seems to be behind higher ranking schools. 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.
