Open Quote This school has approximately 4000 students from all socioeconomic backgrounds and over 70 countries. They have award winning music programs, sports programs, etc! A large pool, performing arts center, after school programs for every interest, and dedicated staff mean that if you want something positive and constructive to do, you'll find it here. Perhaps this would be one of the top schools in the country if all factors were considered. I don't know how many English speaking scholars would do well on a standardized test in say, Arabic! Yet those who know little, if any, English are required to take tests in English and these scores are factored in to the High School's "grade".

While we don't appreciate the behavior of some of our 'neighbors', our middle and high school age children beg us not to consider moving until they are out of school! 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.
