Open Quote This school is not as bad as people as people say, a few bad teachers i had brought this review to 4 stars. The teacher who we will call Mrs. Violence actually threatened to put my head through the board for tossing the eraser into the air Close Quote

Monday, September 26, 2011

Open Quote I have to say I am really disappointed with this school. My son has had several issue with bullying and inapropriate comments from some of the teachers there. Last year I had a teacher make a racist comment in my sons classroom to him. I called the teacher several times never got a return call. When I called the principle he said he would look into the issue but never even called me back even after I left several messages. That says a lot about a school when the principle doesnt even care! I do have to say the assistant principle when I contacted her addressed the issue right away. She seems to care a lot but I stil have been in at least 4 times this year for the bullying issue. These schools dont hold the adults more accountable for what goes on in there classes so the kids see this and continue to do the same thing over and over. Dont get me wrong it starts at home with the Parent but Accountability is very important if these adults do teach this kids this soon I fear this issue is going to get much worse. 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.
