Open Quote The teacher to student ratio is more like 25 to 1. The principal is racist to whites and hispanics. some of the teachers try to push parent of "troubled children" to have there kids "evaluated" and put on meds because they have no backbone and dont know how to set limits or handle children. Worst school in the area! There is a rampant bullying problem towards minority kids. white being the minority in the school. teachers and staff seem to not want to do anything about it at all.

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.
