Open Quote Ever since the current principal began her tenure at Bright test scores have plummeted, enrollment has dropped, and teaching positions have been cut. The principal is very disrespectful and "combative" (her favorite word). She screams at the students and the teachers. I have heard her scream at a teacher in front of other parents and children. Is there any wonder why so many teachers quit in the middle of the year every school year? Our school has a huge problem with bullying unfortunately the biggest bully is the principal and all of our children are suffering because of it. 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.
