Open Quote The school has very few programs or activities for the students. Do not expect to see your children involve in school programs, carnivals or field day. The administration has not been keeping up with the up keep of the school. Parents and stake holders involvement is none due to the current poor leadership. 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.
