Open Quote People at Sky Valley are really nice and everyone has fun being around each other. The rules aren't terribly strict and neither are the punishments (I don't even think we have any) and the classes are both fun and very educational at the same time, so we learn a lot. There's a lot of free will going on - you decide the classes you take, your schedule, and you can go about freely if you want. There's no bullying or high social standards, because there's a big mixed environment of children and teens and parents. Great school, it's kind of sad I have to leave it in a few years.

Open Quote Test scores are low only because most families opt out of the state testing. This is an alternative school that provides a lot of alternative methods of learning, from online learning, Montessori, Parent Partnership program, Environmental education, etc. Many parents drive a half hour or more to bring their kids to these programs for part of the week, and homeschool their children the other part of the week.

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.
