Open Quote Honestly, I don't like this school very much. It seems like most of the people ("white" not trying to be racist here) are really mean/hate other people who aren't white. My brother and I speak Korean and these guys suddenly said stuff like "Why are they speaking another language? This is america. Then the next day they said "Dude there speaking a Chinese language again srsly wtf talk in English" or "Donald trump is gonna send them back so we don't have to worry about them" I hate this school and I am not having a good experience. This school is worst than other schools I've been to. 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.
