Open Quote My son has been at Black for 3 years. He is ADHD and they have always handled any issues amazingly. I'm very thankful. Their teachers are excellent. His kindergarten teacher recognized early on that he had signs of ADHD and needed to be tested for speech as well. I feel like any time I needed to contact the AP, I could do so easily. His teachers responded fairly well to all email communications.

They have open concept classrooms (large rooms partitioned into different classes). They have team teaching (language arts/social studies for one-half of the day, switch teachers for math/science for the other half of the day.

The students have gym, music, and art on varying days. They have a new playground for recess. HEB is a great community partner right next door. 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.
