Open Quote Bullying is rampant. Principal and Teachers do not take bullying seriously.
Advanced students are given an iPad and left on their own. There is no interaction, expectations or follow-up on the advanced work.
Communication from Administrators and Teachers is poor and often conflicting. Be prepared to dig through the information to try and understand what is happening. 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.
