Open Quote This school has greatly improved, and I'm surprised to see the poor ratings. We love it here. The Spanish immersion program is a unique offering. The principal makes a genuine effort to get to know the kids. It's a caring community. Close Quote

Open Quote Poor leadership, poor teachers, poor communication, poor follow through, poor undersatnding of their roll as an educator. The staff and administrators are not willing to perform any task outside of the 8:30am to 3:25pm time frame. The back to school nigths are poorly designed and the information shared is not accurate or followed through on. There is no use of the 24/7 learning as these educators are to lazy to post on the Blackboards. The Spanish program is poorly designed and presented. 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.
