Open Quote By far the worst school my child has ever attended, from the teachers to the office. The education was so far from par it's not even funny! As a active parent I have seen first hand the disorderly behavior of teachers and class aid in the classrooms. The teachers just don't care if the children are learning,only about 35% of the kids are understanding why they are in the classrooms and are willing to work for there grades, the rest of the class needs special understanding that they will need there confidence built up to perform on grade level. Teachers are only giving 50% effort to make there class amazing, that is the bottom line. All kids are entitled to a education that they can understand, some need to know you care about them and when teachers don't make it there main goal kids can't comprehend why they need to learn on what seems like a uphill climb for some kids.

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.
