Open Quote The school of opportunities! The teachers are amazing, and go out of their way to communicate both positive and negative things. They genuinely care for your child. The curriculum is demanding, but the teachers assist in every way possible. The principals seem to have control over their staff, and thrive on positive growth. 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.
