Open Quote This school is rundown, has oversize classrooms, not much is done for kids who are ahead and get excellent grades. They are left to fend for themselves while those that need help get the attention. Everyone needs to be included in all aspects. Lack of Spirit Day for kids to have Fun. They used to have a Fun Run every month but since this new Principal started, she took everything away. Most of the teachers are involved with the students expect about 2 or 3. Sunshine Gardens needs improvements as soon as possible. The kids suffer if things are not fixed. 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.
