Open Quote Serious issues with curriculum, teacher's ratio's NOT 1-10, the constant influx of public vs. Montessori student ratio's per class each year reigns havoc on teacher's (turnover)and leaves children whom are potentially able to move ahead at a stand still and even behind their grade level. Strangely do not have children gardening nor doing activities that other Montessori schools do and has an economic theme that lacks balance and offers opportunities to bring curriculum forward. Profound Curriculum adjustments are needed.

Several proprietors who oddly only allow some teachers in the loop staff meetings and asks employee's to hold on to paychecks until there is revenue, and oddly even chooses to take a "personal seminar" vacation during AIMS. This is not an educational establishment that will enhance child productivity only frustrate the process. The location of the school is the only thing going for itself. 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.
