Open Quote School leadership uses funds that is suppose to go to the children and be used for improving the school to take lavish trips all around the world, completly funded by Forest Glen and the children. Trips that are planned by this leadership the first year include Kentucky, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, Ecuador, Galapagos Island.
School leadership also uses school funds to created positions and to hire family members and friends at higher salaries then seasoned dedicated teachers currently earn.
Forest Glen needs many improvements, school, playground and overall structural and cosmetic condition is very poor. We are rated below other schools in our district in overall condition. As a parents we can also see that we desperately need assistant teachers for over-populated classrooms, and additional help for our special needs children.
Our opinion as a concerned group of parents is to stop the spending on trips and family and friends. If the leadership wants to take lavish trips around the world, we only ask that they pay for it themselves, and to stop the hiring and overpaying of family and freinds. Please use the funds for our children, staff and school as it was meant to be. Parents of Forest Glen 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.
