Open Quote I would not recommend this school if your child is a non-conformist, creative, intellectually curious child who questions the establishment, not to be disruptive but because they want to learn and know. Teachers play favorites, which plays out on full display during 6th grade promotion awards. Unremarkable kids who know how to play teacher’s pet and conform get recognized, while hard-working high-performing children get side-lined. 18 teachers are leaving the school after the 2018-2019 school year. Administration and teachers are overwhelmed and wholly focused on test scores and ranking. Learning and critical thinking falls on the shoulders of the children with help from parents, tutors, and supplemental learning resources. AAP students get all the lift. Bullying goes unaddressed. Teachers are hit or miss. The parents are clannish and stick to their own kind. I would look at other schools in Vienna before choosing which neighborhood to live in. 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.
