Open Quote I am a grandparent of a student that goes to Highland Ave.
Today was a special day for her due to being in the A-B Honor Roll program.
As my daughter got there to enjoy her daughters festivities rap music was blaring and she barely could hear the speaker when they called my granddaughter's name. My daughter was they only one who clapped for my granddaughter which being in the second grade it was a big deal to her. She is a loving and thoughtful little girl and loves and is kind to everyone. (We have already had to go to the school once about her being mistreated by a child.) This was supposed to be a happy day for those who worked hard to get good grades and I am upset to think one race is being treated differently (and I know the come back on that is) but for a school with young children in it you would think the parents would be happy for all kids and would teach their children to be happy for everyone. I am hurt for my granddaughter and I think the school officials should and could be more neutral with their programs. I am pulling my granddaughter out of the school asap. Hopefully the next school will have some class about them and MAKE sure everyone gets treated the same. The school motto is we are ALL family. NOT!!!!! 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.
