Open Quote This is a poor excuse for a school. The principal is cold, distant and could care less about the students. The front office secretaries act like they don't want to see or deal with the students (and parents). The teachers seem to rotate in and out every semester or seem to leave abruptly with no explanation. 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.
