Open Quote We were so excited to have our 4 year old accepted at their pre school. On the first day of school we come to find out our child speaks better Spanish than the teacher! The teacher speaks Spanish very poorly and had misspelled 'Bienvenidos' on the board. She had other Spanish misspellings on the 'Welcome' board as well. The classroom was not colorful and interactive. The stuffed animals she used to designate English/Spanish areas were filthy! The teacher was not prepared to tell us what the kids were going to be learning that year or their daily routine. She has been teaching there for 8 years, is not bilingual, and should not be teaching at a dual language school. When we asked the principal to have our child switched to the other classroom, he refused. We removed him from the school. What a disappointment. 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.
