Open Quote The area in which the school is located is high traffic to not only cars but obvious drug dealing. The staff in the front office gives minimal help,but the few teachers that we worked with were nice and caring. Very little concern from parents as to how their students are doing in school let alone help with volunteering with the school. I attempted to contact the PTA president 3 times and never received a call back. When asked the front office they said they couldn't help me. 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.
