Open Quote I cannot, in good conscience, recommend that anyone send their small children, especially 4 yr old pre-k and 5 yr old kindergarten students to this school. The principal has put such strict drop off, pickup, and visitation policies in place that send a clear message to parents to keep out, while 4 and 5 yr old children are expected to fend for themselves at school pickups, drop-offs, and in-class disruptions, as the school maintains a “what happens at school, stays at school” mentality and parents not lucky enough to be onsite as issues occur are kept in the dark. Even if you are onsite and witness an issue of concern or work to draw attention to your concerns, you will be told "we're working on it" and see no improvements, at best. I’ll elaborate on this in more detail in subsequent reviews… We moved to this community specifically to send our children to this school. We made a mistake. 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.
