Open Quote It's a shame we have this failing, out of touch school in our neighborhood. The assistant principal is totally clueless and incompetent. He has no idea how to run a school and he makes no effort to relate to Valverde's Hispanic population. Worse yet, the interim principal failed miserably at what should have been a simple task of reassuring students and parents, after losing our dedicated principal. She's mean and unreasonable, and makes no sense at all when talking about my kids. 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.
