Open Quote Otter Creek has no positive leadership and does not put the kids first. I and my wife know first hand that they are only worried about numbers of the school instead of positive education for the kids. They need to teach life skills, positive awareness, and respectability of parents, jobs, and school. But they do not teach anything but a test and forget that the number of kids becoming successful are far less than those with assistance throughout their time in school. Be more caring about a child's education and less time with numbers and you will be able to accomplish a lot more.... Good luck to all.... Close Quote

Open Quote There is no money for Special Education. The classrooms look more like jail cells than learning centers. It is depressing and pathetic. 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.
