Open Quote If your kid is kicked and hit in the crotch, punched in the crotch, face, and stomach, has a kid hold his known allergen up to him/her, don't expect justice for your kid. Apparently this is just "kids being kids". I've given up. The principal doesn't care, the counselor doesn't care, front staff doesnt care, the only ones who care are the teachers who are pressured to keep discipline records down. Virtual school next yr for us I think! 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.
