Open Quote Ralph Wilson is one of the most poorly managed schools that I have ever visited.The principal and office staff are constantly late to open up the school, and often times the students, teachers, and parents have to wait outside until staff arrives. The principal is ineffective in her managerial skill and not very cordial. More often than not she is condescending in her attitude towards staff and colleagues.

The greater majority of students come from underpriviledged backgrounds which is unfortunate. However, the principal is oblivious in a need to address these issues or the fact that student behavior is out of control.Leasdership is lacking at this school.Student behavior is off the chart out of control and the teachers are overwhelmed.

I would NEVER recommend this school for anything other than closure or new leadership. 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.
