Open Quote Special Needs students get little to no help. Bullying is rampant and not taken seriously or addressed by staff like it should be. The entire atmosphere is depressing. This is the third school my children have attended and it’s the only school they have hated. 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.
