Open Quote My granddaughter attends this school. I am very pleased with the teachers and staff. They seem to care about each and every student. Close Quote

Open Quote I've been very happy with this school. This area is high poverty and I know that affects student performance, but the staff is very kind. They go above and beyond to provide additional resources - low to no cost - for the students. The physical building was also refurnished not too long ago. The school building is bright and welcoming.

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.
