Open Quote I would recommend against this school and this school district. They claim they don't have enough time to attend to the children's needs. Additionally, they don't respond in a reasonable amount of time.

The school secretaries know more about what's going on than the principal and the assistant principal is a bully.

The district administration doesn't stand up for children either. 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.
