Open Quote Great school! Great teachers! Close Quote

Open Quote Extremely disappointed with this school. Administration is so hands off with the teachers (in k-2nd) that the teachers I have experience with are either lazy with their dealings with the children-offerering little to no playground (and classroom) supervision-with lots! of mishaps and injuries-no notes home to explain accidents and injuries!!! Instead of gains made at home with spelling and math I am seeing a steady decline in abilities due to major classroom distractions. Little discipline is offered in the classroom-kids run it. I'm sure the scores will tell the rest of the story. So sorry I did not pull my child out in kindergarten. I was expecting great things with the new principal, but have found him to be quite wishy washy and too soft in his dealing with serious issues. Close Quote

Open Quote Serious issues with Busing and TAG program. Beginning in 3rd grade TAG Students are separated and given more challenging work environment with little to no diversity. Average classes have large percentage of disadvantaged children and special education children and no interaction with their above average peers. Very disappointed with this school personally. PTA is active. Teachers are good. New Leadership may help 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.
