Open Quote Administration staff needs to be replaced. Refuse to abide by State and Federal laws. Retaliated against 2nd grader when I brought safety concern to their attention.
Had dinner with one of the admin staff and he stated special education students were just lazy and special ed was a joke.
My sons school schedule was changed after a dog that was allowed in the school charges at my son. The dog owner is good friends with the Administration staff. My son had to come to school 15 min late and be picked up 15 min early to avoid the dog. I was told the dog stays your son can go. 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.
