Open Quote Presently, the principal at Weaver Middle School in Merced makes parents especially minority parents feel unwelcomed and disrespected. The principal was using offensive remarks, offensive tone and negative body language! And there is so much worse. The responsibilities of a professional principal are to respect parents and have opened communication with them. I am shocked and extremely disappointed with his comments and actions. 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.
