Open Quote This school is all about who you are based on what you have.
The teachers are spoiled by wealthy families that give them $100 bills as gifts for no reason and the teachers proudly show that off to the rest of the students in the class so their parents can send some of that for them as well.
If you are not rich and cannot spend lots of money on teachers and staff than dont expect any care or respect from them. Very disappointing experience. 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.
