Open Quote There is a disconnect between the staff and parents. The office staff have an air of being bothered when you ask a question. The Principle and Vice Principle seem to think they are above just about everyone in the human race. They talk down to you. Treat you like you haven't a clue what is happening around you.
Teachers seem genuine enough, but it also seems like they have almost been placed there to follow the 'lead' of what they are told to do. Children who are perfect seem to be liked, and others who aren't perfect seem to be singled out. If your kid ever has a bad day, they won't let you forget it. Often talking about the habitual problem your child has after once incident....like where was this information when it first happened?
You might as well move your kid to a new school, they'll will be labelled, and you will never see a genuine look from the staff again. 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.
