Open Quote For the past 6 years this school has experimented with "wall to wall project based learning." Although my child does not attend this school I am concerned with EQUITY i that the school seems to not use textbooks much and you will need to ask this. It is a New Tech Network School and I think, and you will need to check, this school also does not assign much if any homework. You will need to compare using School Digger other schools in the local area. The Katherine R. Smith Elementary school in my opinion has been experimenting with project based learning. The concerns of this school have been brought forth to the school board for many years. I think the best thing for you to do is transfer your child away due to (if true) a radical pedagogy of working wall to wall project based learning which may not work. That will be for you to explore as a parent. 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.
