by a parent

Open Quote I have to say I am truly disappointed in this school. There is no communication between the school and parents. If I call the school to express any concern or a complaint, you would think the principal would contact the parent back to address issues but that is not the case. The school year is drawing to a close and I don't believe I have seen the principal one time throughout the school year and I am at the school daily dropping off and picking up my child. It's almost as though the principal intentionally hides and avoids the parents. Any emails to teachers generally go left unanswered by staff. Also, I am utterly disgusted at the amount of bullying and violence that goes on at this school. My child has been hit on numerous occasions. Teachers turn a blind eye to the problem children and, when I report it, I'm constantly told that there is a "no hitting" policy and the school has a bully awareness program. If a student tries to report being hit, the staff has a tendency to refuse to listen and just 'sentence' the students to detention (even the child who was being hit and not hitting others). I don't see any potential for this school without new admin and staff changes first. 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.
