Open Quote As a former teacher, I saw how unfairly the children in the regular classes were treated as compared to the classes for the GT students. And, there is one classroom in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades that is a GT class. The other classes are a regular education classroom, just like other schools in the district. How this school is able to call itself an Accelerated Studies school is something that the parents should be questioning. Discipline is an issue that is not addressed and there is no support from the administration for the teachers. Look at the number of teachers who have left the school in the past 7 years. That is a true sign of problems within a school. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is extremely well run and has excellent faculty and administration. The uniform policy is an added bonus. Highly dedicated teachers and a hidden gem among public schools in Rock Hill. Close Quote

Open Quote The alternate form of education that this school is able to offer is very beneficial to the gifted and talented child. The self contained GT classes only work to enhance the gifted child's learning environment, and keeps the children interested in what they're learning. 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.
