Open Quote Parent of K and 2nd grade students. The school environment is very friendly and acceptable. I have not heard of any major problems regarding discipline or bullying. All personnel is very warm and friendly; from the staff to the teachers.

Teachers have managed to get my children into the habit of reading which is good and development of their artistic skills.

nevertheless, I feel the overall work / homework assigned to the kids could be brought up a notch. math and writting skills could be improved with more homework...as well as geography and history. 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.
