Open Quote The Principal and Vice Principal at this school are very involved and committed to the students education. They listen to parents concerns and work with them in finding a solution. They have a great speech program, and the referral process was very easy. The Pre Kindergarten teachers are awesome, my little 4 year old is learning to read! The curriculum is fast paced and intense, but they do a good job of teaching to each students individual needs. The Kindergarten teachers are great as well, especially Ms. Thornhill. And the first grade splits up for reading time into leveled groups to make sure the advanced students don't get slowed down and the average students don't get left behind. My three children are learning ALOT here! I am very pleased with this school. 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.
