Open Quote I saw pictures on FCN about the Principal and the ice bucket Challenge. She needs that every day and might help her be a Professional and a better person. She is out for herself about climbing the ladder a control freak that calls the school a business. Got rid of very good experience teachers for young inexperience ones. Every one walks on eggshells.

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.
