Open Quote An excellent school for independent learners and students who face challenges. The teachers and staff are caring and extremely qualified, and they bring a student-centered approach that engages students. The scores posted here don't reflect the true value of this school, and the strength of the support students receive from their teachers. 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.
