Open Quote The teachers don't actually teach you anything, or atleast they didn't when i was there(i was there for 4th and 5th grade, i am in 8th grade now), i was a straight A student and Aced the final testing but after i moved i needed so much summer school because they didn't actually teach you anything
The teachers and administration don't really pay attention to the kids either, the nurse doesn't do anything to help a sick student, and they don't pay attention to kids when they report bullying. 0/10 this is a BAD school 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.
