Open Quote There is simply no reason to ever treat the students less than human. The behavior of the staff displays lack of respect for the children.. They have given up on the kids and the kids can see it, as they hear day in and day out, just how useless they are in the eyes of the staff. The state needs to come in here and do an investigation to expose all the wrong doing...... THE KIDS HERE AT THIS SCHOOL ARE OK, ITS THE STAFF THAT NEEDS FIXING !!!! Close Quote

Open Quote Drugs run rampant at this school I can think of 3 students I knew personally who died from overdoses in the past year. If u are going to send your kids here to get them away from the drugs and trouble making at their old school. Well guess what? All the students were sent there for that reason. Your kids will only get worse. 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.
