Open Quote Over half the teachers care and the rest don't care at all. It shouldn't be a surprise they can't engage their students if they don't care. The teachers think if they make it hard for a student to succeed, they are a superior school. The math department is the worst I've ever seen. There is absolutely no support if your student isn't strong in math. I think a teacher should be graded on how many students get Cs,Ds and Fs. I'm am repulsed by the attitude in the math department because they don't care. I'm disappointed the principal doesnt shape up this dept because there are many kids suffering. The lack of instruction affects the SATs and ACTS. It even impacts the college choice and scholarships. I would pass on this school if your kid isn't a self taught math student. Carmel puts your kid at a disadvantage. 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.
