Open Quote First of all the student teacher ratio is not 20:1 it is closer to 31:1. At that ratio the teacher needs a full-time Aide. Creativity is lacking when it come to teaching kids that don't learn auditorilly. There are 6'-8' openings between classrooms creating constant distractions and limitations for the teachers. The school is 40 years old, you think they could of designed a partition or put in sliding glass doors by now.

The communication from our teachers has been based on teachers personality. In K I was given constant feedback. In 1st & 2nd it wasn't until after Christmas break that communications were more consistant. It is hard to be supportive of the teacher expectations if you don't know your child isn't meeting them. It would be better for K-3 if every 2 -4 weeks we were given areas that need improving or what we can encourage to help them excel. Otherwise we are not able to correct behaviors before they become habits. 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.
