Open Quote Do NOT send your kids here if they are white. They will be bullied by students and staff alike, which is beyond sad when you teach your young child not to see color yet the other families do not do the same. And when beat on, the teachers will not help the white student, but tell them they need to learn to fight back. Thats right, you heard me correct. They encourage physical fighting. We put the kids in the Waldorf school and homeschool instead of sending them here even though it is 1 block away from the house. Awful. 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.
