Open Quote Good, clean facility. Caring & dedicated staff. Student body not all education oriented (some kids make it clear they don't want to be there). Array of extra activities for students, though conflicts can arise between activity meeting times. Pay for busing option, drive or walk is a bummer (depending on where you reside). It might be easy for average learners to get lost in shuffle (much attention focused on below and above average learners). 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.
