Open Quote One star is to many!! It's a school that is worried about nothing more than what the State thinks of them, rather than TEACHING THE CHILDREN!!! The staff, "office help" was horrid this past yr.. Never enough teachers.. Just to many politics & not enough teaching.. !!! Close Quote

Open Quote The school has some amazing and dedicated teachers. There are also students at this school who take their education seriously. That said, the fact that Administration does not care about teachers is appalling. The professional development consisted of training after training on different things, none of which were supported or followed up on. This school does not value teachers as people, but rather someone to place blame upon every time one of their new policies goes awry. I would caution any teacher, new or experienced, this is not a pleasant place to work. Close Quote

Open Quote How ignornat a teacher that reviewer must be if he/she says the kids behaviours are the administration's fault... not putting blame to the parents that raise the childeren in the first place. Close Quote

Open Quote The administration doesn't support the teachers at all. They allow the students to be disrespectful and do not correct them. Teachers write referrals and the administration never processes them. They place them in a pile and then throw them away. It is the worst adminstration I have ever worked for. The students are also mostly lower class and have awful behavior due to the administration. 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.
