Open Quote Teachers are obsessed with sending negative cards and bad notes home. Only PTA parents and their children are welcome there. People from other countries are treated bad and referred by their background. Spoke about this even to principal about this and how they affect my daughter's self-esteem and nothing is done to improve this negative approach and focus on treating every student the same, Horrible and some meanest educators you will cross your path on the earth. They hide things that happen in school when someone pics on your child and PTA and teachers' children are given special treatments. 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.
