Open Quote Teachers need training. Some still have pets and award only those they prefer. Principal and Assistant Principal have kids there, and many Teachers who add to overcrowding, and they win awards, take all the daycare spots and don't live in the community. Gate is anyone who studied for the test or your mom is a Gate teacher. Some teachers are really nice, but others think they know everything and they're not trained well. Bad attitude. Many in the community want to and cant wait to send their kids to private school as no kids really live in the community that go there. Lots of Asians and Hispanics that don't live in community, spoiled majority kids with parents who race past the crossing guard and speed in the parking lot. Fake attitudes around. School just gives homework for the heck of it and extra work at home for no real reason. Needs a shift in teachers, move them to other schools and move out non residents. 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.
