Open Quote We have been very pleased with this school and the high standards the teachers have held for both of my children. We have been extremely pleased with communication from teachers and staff. Close Quote

Open Quote There are too many children enrolled in each class. Every year each my daughter's teachers seem to be overwhelmed and can control their class nor teach to satisfactory. My daughter is falling behind because of the poor teaching. They have hired a new principle and counselor this year who is below satisfactory. We have issues and neither her teacher, principle or counselor seem to take action or be willing to go one step above to solve any issues. None of the faculty seem to be as involved with the children as they should be. My daughter will be moved out of this school district next year and never return. 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.
