Open Quote This is a great school for a middle of the road student. If you child does not fit into a box they will struggle. While the teachers we have encountered are good, the curriculum does not really foster learning. They do not challenge students who need it. If you need/want a challenging curriculum for your child -- avoid this middle 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.
