Open Quote Principal’s decisions are based on ego and her need for popularity amongst the masses and not the actual needs of the special ed students. TEA needs to be involved as there are so many discrepancies. If you are not white, you do not belong. Close Quote

Open Quote While the education at McAuliffe is fine, the mental health of the students there is awful. I get that education is important but hear me out. That school made my mental health really bad. Mental health is a really big issue in teenagers these days and McAuliffe makes it really bad. The kids are so mean to each other and the teachers don’t do anything about it. All they say is to get over it because you have to deal with it all year. They don’t even suggest ways to help you. All they say is “just breathe and you’ll get through it.” That doesn’t help anyone feel better. This school drove me absolutely insane. I left before my 3rd year there was over. 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.
