Open Quote Not a great experience with the teacher. (2013-14 school year) Spoke to the Principal about it and she assured me that she would speak to the teacher. I called 10 days later and she said "oh I thought I would wait until the end of the year." It was March...so I guess the rest of the year doesn't matter to a 9 year old (straight A student, by the way.)
Very disappointed. PS Principal was new that year, we'll see how the school ranking plummets in a few. Close Quote

Open Quote I have two children in this school and have been part of the Murdock community for four years. We are thrilled with the positive atmosphere, commitment to learning, and willingness of teachers and staff to incorporate parental support. Both of my children wake up eager to go to school and enjoy the academic challenges Murdock provides. The teachers here are consistently excellent. 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.
