Open Quote This school is just a very low performing school and they really just need to do away with the entire staff and start over. It is beyond me why the state doesn't take over this school as it has proven time and time again that they don't perform to standards unless state standards are extremely low all around and that would make sense.

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.
