Open Quote Overall the school is decent, my child has been there for 3 years. Every year it’s always small problems etc: very unorganized! My daughter teacher left about 2 months ago still subs! But that’s not my issue my issue is I have not received any grades at all, progress reports went home 2-3 weeks ago No child in that class recived one, reports cards come home this week. Still everyone is coming with no real answers!!!!! Yes I know my child is smart, but what if it was an subject she needed some improvement in the time between progress reports and report cards is that time. I have been to the school 2 times and called, and sent messages on the class dojo app with little to no help with this situation! It’s very very frustrating when it comes to my child education 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.
