Open Quote I love this school their great with the kids. However an employee who works for the school works for a dance studio my daughter use to attend. When I walked past her to enter the school she was telling the resource officer my business from the dance studio. So who knows what she says about the school and the students to other people. I thought HIPPA protected you from that. I guess not. But she's not very professional and I don't think she should be working with children. 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.
