Open Quote I love my school to the stars. Such an amazing environment with the sweetest faculty and incredible students. Each and every teacher makes you want to come back to school. All of our office members also keep our school under control. All in all, it's a great school and I love going there each and every day. Close Quote

Open Quote If the parents would get more involved and make their kids work towards a common goal this would be a better school. Parents blame the admin for their little darlings not doing their work 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.
