Open Quote While there are some EXCELLENT teachers at Burris, the administration is very loose and students lack significant supervision. The quality of education is spotty depending on the teacher, and I never felt that my children were safe at the school due to lack of internal structure and supervision. We, along with many other families, ended up pulling our children out of the school. Do your homework before you assume that test scores make this a positive educational environment. 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.
