Open Quote The students here are really bad and totally delay learning time. I suggest you go somewhere else if you don't want to constantly see kids fighting each other and get threatened to be fought, see kids getting taken to the discipline office every 10 minutes, be around bad kids that do bad things, and just all around ruin your school experience. Teachers don't do anything to prevent the children being defiant, rude, violent, etc. All they really do is send them to an office to talk to an adult. The only real reason why I went to skinner was because my friends were going. Now I kind of regret going to this school because of the students that need to be removed from the school but aren't due to negligent staff. 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.
