Open Quote My grandson's have gone there for 3 years. They love it and seem to learn the same as my friends kids. They have gardens and hikes and learn more than just sitting in a classroom. Close Quote

Open Quote Lot's of play, very little actual learning, zero diversity. Kids are sheltered and a little weird. Poor academics. Kids are behind when they start middle school after ADS. The whole philosophy look great on paper, but it is NOT delivered. 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.
