Open Quote Our son went through all 3 years here. We were thrilled with the education, the quality of the course work as well as the high level of teaching. The administration was amazing and showed great care for all students. There are wonderful volunteer opportunities for the students as well. My son and his friends had such a great time in middle school and we couldn't be happier! 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.
