Open Quote The low scores at this school could very well be attributed to parents who refuse to teach their children English. Raising a child in a Spanish-Speaking ONLY household places them at an extreme DISADVANTAGE when it comes to learning. Also, there is a poor parent turn out whenever the school hosts reward ceremonies which indicates the parents are not involved in their children's education. Perhaps the school should implement an agenda program where all students are required to enter their homework into the agenda and parents must sign off.

On the other hand, I attended the end of the year awards ceremony and a child earned 900 reading steps but didn't make Principle or A/B Honor roll. I find it hard to believe that children who earn reading steps (where parents sign to say their child has read 30 mins.) are failing class. If they are reading, they should be passing. I believe the teachers lack parent support greatly at this school and regret moving into this district. Just spending twenty minutes (per subject) going over math and reading with child can make a world of difference. We are homeschooling our gifted child next year. She doesn't stand a chance of being successful at this 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.
