Open Quote TEACHERS are exceptional and are very easy to communicate with. The problem for low ratings is because of so many different ethnic children, which I suspect whose parents do not take the time to help their children with their homework, because they are not literate in the English language.

My great grandson has been attending this school (3 yrs) and does his homework every evening and has always been at least two grade levels above required score in reding. He has a single Dad that cares and loves him to ensue he is doing his required homework.

A teacher can only instruct them, the rest is up to the student and parent. 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.
