Open Quote Mrs. Scully and her assistant take the side of the teacher if you raise any concern with the teacher, as if your child and his problems are not important at all. They keep on saying how wonderful their teacher is, ignoring the problems you have with the teacher. They do not care for the kids at all. 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.
