Open Quote I went here since Kindergarten until 5th grade, and there's a lot people should know about this school.

Education wise, its pretty decent. The teachers do genuinely care about their student's success, and they will take as much time if their class seems to struggle.

And while the test scores prove otherwise, its because that its an incredibly toxic environment for kids to be in. Bullying is really out of hand, and really the only way to not get bullied is to be the biggest bully. As someone who's had to deal with the other classmates for 5 years, please, if you wish best for your kid, do NOT send them here. Your child will either become despised by other kids, or they take the dark route and become those kids that become toxic to others. Either way, it will mold your child in a way that will hurt and warp their future.

I really do hope things have and will get better there, but from my experience, I don't recommend this school at all. Find somewhere else. (I recommend Sara Collins) 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.
