Open Quote I am disgusted with this School. I have never seen such poor judgment. First off they have no crossing guards. The traffic is horrible with drop off and pick up. I was told the parents voted against a cross guard or traffic control, as a parent I do not remember voting for any such thing. This is very dangerous. The teacher I have is a complete scatter brain, very unorganized, with no structure. At first I thought it was just me, then I was talking with other parents who said the same. I had turned in my volunteer form, at the start of school, I ended up turning in 3 of them, for the school to turn around and tell me.. Oh we found your original one. The teacher tells me my kid is missing assignments, I was completely dumb founded to find the assignments in the class room. So this is very disturbing to me, when I am told my child is doing well, to see the grades have gone down 1/2 a score.
Now for the principal, I get a message from my child ... had to change their shoes... of course no other kid has had to, as I have observed the sandals on others plenty of times, and no PE what difference does it make. I take the shoes up to go back and give them to my kid, for the principal to say here I will take them back, there is Star Testing Make up going on and you will interrupt the class... WHAT.. and you wont? What difference does it make... he is a bit of a power player. I would not recommend this school... I dont even want to start on the fact that most kids who are enrolled travel from other areas, I thought there were boundary's. The PTA is worthless as well, they have out of boundary people doing the PTA. This school says it is a closed campus when in fact I have seen the campus open with the gardeners being there in the mornings when the kids are getting there. This is also unacceptable.... anyone can get on this campus. I have never seen such a poorly run school, and if you tell them they take it very personable and attack you and make excuses. I hope this helps some of you. I hope they get a new principal, they surely need one. 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.
