Open Quote I find the principal, Jeff Harkin, unresponsive to the needs of the individual child. He is unresponsive to phone calls. He is unresponsive to emails. He is unresponsive to parental requests.
I think a good portion of the teachers are good. There is a teacher there whose native language is not English and is hard for the students to understand. Speech clarity is important to keep kids interested in the topic, is important for them to be able to learn. Hopefully they find a quality principal sometime in the near future.
Also the kids have only 4 minutes between classes in a three-story school building with cement steps, and two hallways. I find this outrageous, and so do other parents I converse with about this. If these kids don't make it to class on time, amid these conditions, they get an dubiously enforced
"intraschool tardy". There is no time for students to go to the restroom or to maintain their hydration. This rule is unhealthful. I have gone to the school nurse about this to no avail. I have gone to the district nurse about this to no avial. They don't care about the unhealthful practice. 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.
