1 to 12 teacher student ratio. Kids thrive in small groups and get plenty of attention. They are the only school in southern riverside county using Google for education along with Google Classroom technology making homework and class assignment fun, interactive and easy for parents to be connected. School is on its way to be IB accredited. Great school and highly recommended.
