Open Quote I was a student at this school for 5 years. My first few years I loved this school, but after 4th grade I hated it because I got bullied in 4th grade and kept getting bullied after that. In 5th grade, I moved to Visalia and I was so glad I left Dorsa. Another reason I hated 4th grade was because of the new principal. She was terrible. I'm so glad I left. 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.
