Open Quote I live in Colorado. I have never been to this school, but I just read about an incident that has been going on with a 2nd grade student and bullying. I am totally unimpressed by the way this school, in particular the Principal, has handled this situation. I am a school nurse and every child who walks through my door has a detailed report of their complaint, how I treated them and if I phoned parents.
The fact that a child can be injured at school, over and over, and nothing is done is APPALLING.
This is the job of the Principal, to be ever vigilant about the safety of his students. What a poor example he is to the community and other schools. 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.
