Open Quote Excellent environment. Daughter loves her teacher and staff. Close Quote

Open Quote Overcrowded, 32 children in each grade 5 class. Bullying, bad language, terrible behavior problems and no discipline. Children were actually twerking on desks during class. No policies in place to deal with such issues. No respect for other students or teachers. My child's teacher told me, "I can't help anymore". 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.
