Open Quote my daughter is bit of a Tom-boy. she likes to play rough and doesn't tolerate bullies. she fights for her rights and for other kids when they are bullied. she has been "written-up" for hitting, yelling at someone, and most recently "almost flipping another girl off." after talking with a few parents in this school system, there is definitely something amiss. if your child does not fit the mold, behave 100% of the time, and know the rules of polite society already, be prepared to keep a log book of contact with the principal's office and her staff. we have had social services called on us twice, both were deemed baseless, thank god, but what craziness our experience has been with Mead Elem. oh by the way, my daughter is 6 years old. first grader. yes, all this in just two years. we love the town, and most people here, but this school has a lot of problems right now.

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.
