Open Quote 30-35 students in each k-3 classroom, not 17 per classroom teacher. A formula for the student:teacher ratio is based on TOTAL number of licensed staff...don't be fooled, the CLASS SIZES ARE HUGE! Most of the students are Hispanic with many who are very low academically, due to limited experience with English. This fact combined with enormous class size leaves little time or ability for teachers to meet each student's academic needs. Generally the staff cares about kids, but 700 k-5 students in one school with only 24 classroom teachers is unrealistic. Because RECS is a for-profit school, the only focus principal Lance Howard has is numbers...student numbers and test scores. I really dislike teaching here and will tough it out, but will not return next school year. There's not enough resources or support to meet needs of ELL and special needs students and there's no excuse for such large classes. Oh, by the way, students are in school from 7:30-3:30, Monday-Thursday and 7:30-1:30, Friday's, and had indoor recess 40 times last year, due to "cold weather. Do your children a favor, avoid Roosevelt Edison Charter School. 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.
