Open Quote being new to the area, and in Larkspur's district, i went with the flow. i had a conflict right away when we went to tour the school. the front office wouldn't allow a tour. i asked why, and was given every excuse in the book. mainly that the teachers were in the middle of their set-up time. from day one in the classroom, my child was told there were too many students for her to have any individual attention. then, the bullying came up. we have been in numerous times to "straighten it out," threats of suspension are voiced, and yet there is no follow-through. i have taken all i can stand, and hope no one else has to endure such an ordeal!

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.
