Open Quote The school tried to put an new intern in charge of an advanced subject with no supervision. The result was a disaster and the school did nothing to help the kids, because of politics. My advice to parents is to get involved early and often, and I wish I had moved my child to a different class. 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.
