Open Quote The school itself need al ot of work and the teacher they have truly not sure why they are teaching . No motivations, poor communications, lots of busy work but hardly any teaching but they keep the kids busy by giving them novels to read and test them on. The teacher have zero patience, and when things need to be said is not done on time. Grade get posted super late. Administration when you bring up a concern they truly do not look into it at all but give you the same round a round in which as parent you get tired . They truly do not care if they continue to loose kids, so is easier for them for those parent to leave when they are aware how things are being don than trying to find a solution. The school has no activities at all except for vpk-1st grade. This school runs pretty much like private school compare to the other Academicas which is horrible. Another thing, the uniform not only is expensive but the quality is really poor, so you have this kids wearing a blazer the whole year around but again they look all nice but the teacher they have teaching our kids are really poor quality and the same way they complain about our kids, we ourselves notice how they can be and if they are doing anything. Please avoid this school. Do not let the school grade give you any high hopes. Find a difference Academica school or public school. I know every school has something but not as bad as PGA.

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.
