Open Quote The school is hella lit Close Quote


by a parent
Thursday, February 21, 2019

Open Quote The principal is probably the worst thing about the school. Jelly Welsh does nothing to reprimand the bullying she does nothing to communicate with the parents and she lets her teachers belittle the students as a matter of fact bullying is all over the school the fights are just dangerous to the point where they’re showing all over the news and the school does nothing to rectify the problem. Every year the school just goes downhill more and more. Close Quote

Open Quote I have issues with the fact that a child can be attending Sutter Middle School for 6 weeks and apparently not be turning in class or homework and ends up failing 5 of 6 classes on the progress report and not one single call or note is sent home from the 2 teachers who have those classes to the parent to notify that there is an issue. Even when the parent has asked questions in the student's agenda book to notify if there are any issues or problems with said child. That makes me believe they don't have any concern with helping to assure that kids get a good education. 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.
