Open Quote BE WARNED! The principal is very hands off and nonchalant as it relates to instruction and discipline. Bullies control the building, teachers' hands are tied, and administrators are "working on things". My daughter has been stabbed, punched, and spat on since September, but they are "working on it."

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.
