Open Quote This school is going down the drain. It used to have a good reputation. But, with current management there is zero accountability. They don't care about any complaints or feedback from parents. There are recent incidents where one of the teachers has been behaving badly with the students and treating them badly. Several parents tried to approach management to complaint but they never responded either to emails or requests for a meeting. One of the students even got hurt because of the rude behavior of that teacher. I lost trust in them and moving my kids to another school. Close Quote

Open Quote IN the beginning of the year in 3rd grade it was quite amazing knowing Ms. Davis was the principle at the time, yet again all things must end. Starting 4th grade Ms. Davis has left her position ((She quit)) And that's when the school went going down... After few weeks passed her leaving I started to feel gloomy, because the students started to act up and the original students who attended left leaving me by myself. The new students were quite nice at first till they started to become ruthless and disobedient which might I say made me at a breaking point here I couldn't put up with their nonsense, Years pass me being in 6th grade, all the teachers have been leaving some returning, the teachers became rude as well and selfish, and losing quite many of my papers seeing my grades go down. My grades going down I was starting to give up, seeing kids change behaviors... someone in particularly was new and so helpful and sweet till when he was in the school the next week he was completely changed into some rude student. Victims in the school are bullied I was once bullied, till the only way not get bullied was to act much like them... Which I disliked so much.. Sometimes I wish I can just be in a new school at the time and start off fresh being a wonderful student I used to be...I don't recommend this school whatsoever not even for a new 12th grader.. I beg you if your child comes up to you saying someone or they are getting bullied they may be telling the truth..SO please do listen to your child/ children.. I hope this can at least give a side view of a student myself putting up with these things through almost my whole life I wish you a farewell. 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.
