Open Quote It is a great disappointment that next year we are losing 1-2 teachers and have lost some great volunteers & school employees because of the lack of leadership since Ms. Butler has left.

It's interesting that so many people do not see what is really happening at the school because they either don't spend the time there, or have their own ulterior motives. I do hope that the remaining unhappy teachers can find a way to work with or around the current Principal and his lack of leadership skills so that we can keep our school rated as one of the top schools.

So many of us parents are hoping for a better year this year and that something improves or changes drastically at the leadership level.

We as parents should not be responsible for cleaning, planning or funding all the activities at the school for our children. These tasks are a huge responsibility that comes along w/the role and title of being a Principal and whose #1 goal should be to make sure that ALL his staff is happy and that our children's experiences while here are the best they can be.

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.
