Open Quote STEM Academy at Helen Bernstein looks good on paper, but I pulled my kids from this Pilot school when I found out that many of their teachers are subs. I found the principal out of touch with the students and with the teachers. In fact, my daughter told me that the teaching staff does not get along and is completely divided. She has overheard teachers gossiping about one another and some teachers even ask their students what others are saying about them. Unhappy teachers make for an unhappy environment. The principal is known to be heavy handed and authoritative, not a collaborator. Not a supportive environment. As a former teacher myself, I can see that what is going on at STEM is a school floundering and divided. Not a good thing 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.
