Open Quote Teachers don't care at this school, I can name a few, they can leave a message only, they will not return your call when you call them back to discuss your student, they will not respond to your emails either, getting ready to contact the district, will see how will they handle the situation???

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.
