Open Quote I love this school. My kids love this school. There school is clean neat. Very organized. Teachers there are nice kind. And very understanding. The principal there is awesome. Very outgoing very involved not the type to be away and sitting in his office all day. He goes out his way to see the kids visit class room and talk to parents. Is a beautiful school very artistic and creative. No complaint. 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.
