Open Quote It says a lot about a school that allows boys to hit little girls and are not disciplined for it. No wonder boys think it's ok for them to hit girls they are taught that there are no consequences for their actions and it's no wonder girls think this kid of behavior is ok. Good thing I let my daughter know that if it happens again she needs to stick up for herself because the school principal sure isn't doing anything to protect her students. 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.
