Open Quote My daughter was a victim of bullying, and this school did absolutely nothing to protect my child! I was constantly at the school to talk with the Vice Principal, but nothing seemed to help matters. Things came to a head when my daughter was jumped by five girls, and when I finally told her to defend herself, she was penalized. From my encounters with other parents, I found out that this was a common practice at Lovejoy, to penalize the victims rather than dealing with the assailant. I am getting my children out of this school, and advise others not to even consider it. 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.
