Open Quote I have found staff to be highly unprofessional. when having academic struggles and behavior struggles with son, tried to cooperate with staff to find solutions. My son transferred out of state with Sec. 504; school insisted they "do not have the resources", suspended my son for nearly 30 school days last year (2010-2011), and did NOTHING to help with problem. this parent had to take initiative to contact staff regarding issues. I have been told from numerous credible sources that this school has spread hateful and hurtful and most importantly, untrue rumors about me. I tried to cooperate with school, but they chose to make personal attacks on this parent instead. I took this problem all the way to the superintendent and school board with no positive results. My son has since been put on an IEP, but no academic support comes from the school. He's enrolled online for a few core classes, and a phone call from the counselor twice a week is all the support I get. In the end I, a single working parent of 4 children, lost my job due to too many phone calls and meetings regarding school issues. This has been my personal experience with this school. Others may have had different results. 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.
