Open Quote I love this school! The teachers and administration are very loving and caring and create a positive atmosphere. My daughter has been there 3 years and has had 3 excellent teachers! The school creates many parent involvement activities (training for academics, family movie nights, and game nights). They also provide a parent lending library with learning games and activities the children can check out and bring home to use. The communication between teachers and parents are great. The principal and assistant principal are very friendly and are always available when needed. My daughter looks forward to going to school every day and is excelling in school! Close Quote

Open Quote Assignments come home misspelled BY THE TEACHERS. Last year one teacher actually wrote the word "axed" instead of "asked". I am appalled by this school. Talking is UNACCEPTABLE in this school and the children are treated like cattle. The principal has a condescending attitude toward parents as do some teachers. They do keep up appearances from the outside though. I would RUN from this school. This is our fourth year here and we are selling our house to escape this school. Close Quote

Open Quote The principal is very hands-on and the teachers and staff work very hard to help every child succeed. The school is new and clean also. 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.
