Open Quote My child has been attending this school for 2 years now she is a special needs student when I enrolled her in school to get her the help she needed to test into kindergarten after 2 years she has made little to no progress she still hasent tested into kindergarten her teacher is extremely lazy she sends home other students work home with my daughter an wrights my daughters name on the paper I work with my daughter weekly I know what her had wrighting looks like an none of the papers sent home were hers when I confronted the teacher about it she said "she didnt want to send my child home with nothing cuz it's hard to get her to do assignments sometimes" I replied in not such a nice way an asked her "so you would much rather take away work from other students to give me the false impression that my child achieving more in the class room than what she actually is" when I asked her that she just stared at me like I was in the wrong for confronting her I was so up set I cried a couple days later I opened my daughters back pack to clean out her lunch box there was a form in there from pitcher day which was in the beginning of September an it is now the middle of November my daughters pitcher was terrable so I wanted to reschedule for her to take another pitcher when I took the form to the front office to reschedule they informed me that pitcher retake was the last week of September now it all reality it wasent a big deal bit it just shows this teachers lack or responsibility an her great level of laziness it has been one issue after another with this school I requested a meeting with the principal on several occasions an the teacher which has yet to happen almost 3 month later I have been looking forward to experiencing school days with my daughter since the day she was born an this school completely ruined this experience for us if I had the option to home school I deffently would but with my dad getting ready for a lung transplant an with my mother in law needing care for her Parkinson's disease that leaves very little time to give my child the help she needs an deserves I came to tusd for help with my daughter that needs the help I am not able to provide an honestly this school is unbelievable I hate walking in there every day to get nothing but dirty looks from the staff members I feel completely unwelcome at my child's school an extremely judged I'm not looking forward to the future with this school an it has gotten to the point that my family an I will be moveing to insure our children wont attend TUSD this next year in 2019 or any year after that if I could give a 0 star I deffently would deffently do your research before enrolling your child at Steel Elementary it is a 2 star school an it deffently shows between that an the fact that this school an its students are performing at a below average level for arizona state requirements I'm curious as to why tusd allows schools with below average scores with below average improvements is allowed to continue to teach students at "a below average level" Sorry Not Sorry ... but these "Below Average Teachers teaching at a below level all want rases???? 🤣 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.
