Open Quote The shool principal brushes bulying under the rug...tries to make it look like nothing of the sort would happen in her school. Teachers do little to nothing to help evaluate or help students who struggle with learning disablities despite delining grades and the student's parents begging for help. 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.
