With declining enrollment over the past decade, the infrastructure issue must be addressed immediately and dramatically. This budget calls for a cost per student of $20,570, of which only $7,690 is instructional cost. The rest is infrastructure and overhead. This budget needs to target a reduction in operating costs of at least $5,000 per student and get to work on realizing this savings. By the way, this cost compares with tuition at the British School of $23,350 (grades 1 - 6) and the Catholic School average of $3,500 (where graduation rates are 96%).
