Open Quote Attendance is a joke. My daughter was on vacation with us for 4 school days, and the school listed her as present each and every day. There is NO accountability.

Teacher feedback is almost nonexistent. Your child could be failing, and you won't receive a call from the school. By the time I found out, it was almost too late for my daughter to recover. 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.
