Open Quote Too many staff turnovers for us. New Principal in the middle of the year. Now Vice-Principal left. Many teachers quit at the end of this school year as well.

Education is sub par at best. We are switching schools and have a lot summer catching up to do. 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.
