Open Quote the test scores are bad the area is bad as well Close Quote


by a parent
Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Open Quote Although the test scores suck here, you gotta account for the amount of children that come from Non-English speaking homes. So teaching the same subjects to the same amount of students is double the work when compared to many other schools.

My girls have gone here since pre-school, they are now in 2nd and 3rd grade, and almost all of the staff is very loving. Only one teacher that I have met there does not respect parents wishes, but once we transferred out of her class it was fine.

Besides the one teacher, and nowhere is there a perfect place yet, they are surrounded by many loving faculty and staff. 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.
