Open Quote Even though it is a public school, but teachers really know your child well.
Community is great too. Close Quote

Open Quote This is a very happy, friendly, yet challenging school. The energy and warmth is palpable from the minute you step into the office. The teachers and staff are seasoned professionals who not only nurture, but push your child. I come from a family that has groomed its children for the Ivy Leagues for generations. I was quite worried about sending my daughter to a large public school, especially one that is not "ranked" #1 in the metropolitan area. However, this school exceeds my expectations in every respect. Although it is large, it has an unbelievably small, welcoming, friendly, feel and the children receive an extreme amount of one-on-one quality attention and focus from everyone in the school.

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.
