Open Quote The thing that made this school rank so well was the parents’ willingness to adapt and make up for lacking teachers. Leadership is wanting. Bullying abounds as does boredom in the classrooms, teachers who won’t even look at you when you meet them. This school needs help. 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.
