Open Quote My daughter has mild autism. While she has only spent one year here so far, I have seen a dramatic improvement with her. Also, while this school may have over 1300 students, it never felt like my daughter was "lost" in the crowd. She might as well been in a school of a 100 students, it felt like teachers and staff knew who she was and always had the time. 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.
