Open Quote The principal is an unreasonable bully. He has smiles for the school board, superintendent and the thugs that have their underwear hanging out, but is absolutely useless to parents and good students. He can not be trusted to take care of and watch over our best and brightest. The standard he sets is the lowest possible one. 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.
