Open Quote wonderful education - 2 of my boys went there and they couldn't be more different as individuals yet it was the right place for both children. They are now in college and have been very well prepared for third level education. Close Quote

Open Quote My sister and I attended this school for high school and now my nephew attends for lower school. It is an amazing school that provides one on one care for their students from pre-k to high school. The headmaster is very personable and makes sure that he is familiar with everyone. When my father died he even attended his funeral. The extra-curriculars are amazing and I remember being a cheerleader and playing on the tennis team and having a great time. It prepared me well for college and I am still friends with my classmates 10 years later. I am African American and there was not a lot of diversity but I adapted well and it was not an issue for me or my sister or my nephew. 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.
