Open Quote First my niece was bullied and nothing was being done until I contacted Student Services. Then my son gets in trouble for someone’s else’s mistakes. Both situations were handled poorly. Close Quote

Open Quote Plainfield has been a great experience for my son. Granted, he is only in 1st grade, but I am beginning to doubt the validity of these test score based ratings. This school is comprised of 67% Hispanic children and I assume many of them are English language learners, which would obviously skew the scores downward (imagine how difficult it would be to take a test in a language you are still learning!)

The teachers and even Principal seem great and my son LOVES to go to school. Loves it. Everyday. 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.
