Open Quote Worst school you can imagine dealing with. I have 3 children Ages 8, 6, & 5 and this school has teachers who are inconsistent and a principal/assistant principal that could careless to respond to the parents. We were having behavioral issues with our youngest and her teacher kept threatening to kick her out so we tried to meet with the principal 5 times and she never responded to any of our e-mail, phone calls, or messages personally hand delivered to the office. Not only that but, our kindergartener was told 2 times that he did not need a parent teacher conference because "he was making sufficient progress & the teacher was not concerned." Come to find out 2 weeks before school was to be out for the summer she says, "Your son is not making progress equivalent to K5 standards." WHAT? I wrote all over his progress report about how we were never notified and we were told this 2 weeks before school lets out?! THEN....this is the worst, our 8 year old came home with at least 2 spelling words MISPELLED that he had to learn for his weekly spelling test. These are words that she typed out and should have seen with spellcheck that it was not correct. Not only that, but one week a spelling word was "dumb"?? This is absolutely the worst school in Culpeper. Luckily we got our kids out for this coming school year and will never suggest this school to anyone. 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.
