Open Quote Bad idea!
Not wise to run a middle school for 9-11 year old children. The teachers have over a 150 students, so if your child struggles in any academic area, they will fall further behind. Sadly, the teaching staff at this school label children "Not diploma bound", which means DO NOT help this student as they are not on track to graduate high school. Many teachers at this school need to retire and should not receive a pension, as they did not teach, but simply passed everyone on down the road! 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.
