Open Quote it is so sad that southwest claims to be a school that has special needs education, but if they have a special needs child with a color thats not their favorite, they will push that child out in the schools for children with real behavioral problems. dont send your special needs child there, its not for them. sad, sad sad.

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.
