Open Quote This school has the worst grading policy in America. Students that fail to do assignments are given a grade of 50. This is the dumbing down of America because of garbage schools like this Close Quote

Open Quote My son has autism. They will not acknowledge this. We are asking for an iep but they are dragging their feet. Hes at a 4th grade level vs his chronological age but the teachers still hold him to 8th grade standards. He fails while they ignore him. 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.
