Open Quote My child went to this school for a half of the year. My child was also bullied and only one teacher seemed to do anything to assist and was very helpful. I would have taken my child out sooner if not for the efforts of this teacher. I was told other teachers my child was part of the problem yet when I asked nothing was provided to show me. The other student had a history of behavior issues according to several other parents and students. I finally took my child out of this school. At parent teacher conferences I was given a report card but not shown any work my child completed showing me any issues. It was the first time I heard there were academic issues. The communication was terrible even after I asked to be updated. 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.
