Open Quote Telling the truth, based on the school rating, I expected more. Many teachers here don't even teach the material and expect us to learn everything on our own. 70 of the questions on our tests have not been reviewed or explained in class. We don't even get to see the mistakes we make because teachers don't return our tests. I wonder how we supposed to learn? The education process at this school is more like self-study. The time spent in the class is only time-consuming because not that much is done here but testing. After a very shallow explanation of the concept, we are tested on a very deep level. You may even need a tutor to actually help yourself understand the topic so you don't flunk a 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.
