Open Quote Just to give parents an idea ...my son which is now sixth grader in this school has been doing worst than ever... the years prior he struggled but teachers over all were good with him and he would pull thru and would actually learn because of the support he had from the teachers and me.... this year has gone sooo bad I'm in tears because he's not learning anything the teacher and principle don't care they just want to get thru day and go they dont care if they learn anything......I have complained about changing him but there is no room principle did not budge at all ....(one detail he is in combo class which means one teacher for 2 grades 5th and 6th graders) nobody is learning nothing this year well at least not in this class with that teacher ...if he does pass im afraid he will go to middle school without knowing sixth grades basics.... I really don't recommend this school I am still looking for other ways to help him ....thinking of changing schools hope its not to late in the year. 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.
