Open Quote The best after attending, your child will grow to be the greatest person meant to live in this society. The low ratings it may appear to have is just an idiotic system of the, failed standardized testing, in reality that doesn't matter in elementary, whats does matter is being a kid learn about the strange world which you are just getting to know. So instead of being locked up and taking test for idealistic elitism demonstrations you idiots should find the values of natural life and a child freedom and let them be just that free. Once upon a time i went there and the grand scale of diversity and that fact that we had recess even in cold days allowed me to explore everything about the world i lived in i was able to interact with plants and insects and i was able to develop simple communication skills without prejudice of my fellow child based on the color of their skin because i simple just saw another being attempting to beat the opposite team at kickball but instead this is lost because of so many peoples brilliant idea to throw tests and papers at a child an presume that they will comprehend what could have easily been understood by hands on out side fun. But its better to take their child like sense of wonder at a young age to better integrate them into a mindless conformist society especially with all their lazy idiotic parents who have children just to put an iPad in front of their faces and never truly enjoy their children. What i'm getting at is that waddell is amazing the school system isn't dont trust scores love your children love the world. 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.
