Open Quote We moved to this school neighborhood based on our agent recommendation (our main criteria were schools and budget). However, we had quite a real culture shock when we started school. Our previous school never asked for donations as aggressive as this school.
Minimum donation of hundreds of dollars per child per year was very strongly requested at the beginning of school. There were also other multiple donation requests that go over a a hundred per student...for teachers to buy classroom supplies, for room parents to buy crafts and party supplies etc. There are at least 4 parties planned per year! These donations do not include food and some items.
Apparently for some reasons, the school does not get enough funding from the substantial property taxes..to fund PE, music, science etc.
Parents and students are pressurized to donate. A parent was "shamed" by other parents and teacher, because he did not donate as much as requested, through emails and teacher talking to parent about it in front of other parents and the class of students themselves. The affected child apparently heard the loud conversation and asked the parent at home. This is quite a culture to experience.
So, I am just saying this openly to prepare any parents who are thinking of moving to this neighborhood based on school etc. 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.
