Open Quote This school is awful. I only have one child, and am so glad I don't have to go through all the same garbage if I had more children. It started in 2nd grade, got worse in 4th (his male teacher was a bully), 6th grade was a nightmare. In general I would say the problem is the "attitude" of state employed teachers. They have this mentality that they are "all supreme" or untouchable. Many of them believe that since they are teachers they know everything...they don't. They may be knowledgeable on their subject, but that's about it. For some reason they hold the belief that they can do as they please with your child in their classroom. They seem to forget they are a tate paid employee, my tax dollars pay their over-inflated union wages, therefore they work for me the taxpayer! I am so disgusted with the experience at the elementary level, that I will begin homeschooling my child the rest of his education at home. 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.
