Open Quote I love this school so far! Why the bad ratings? This school is fantastic and the staff is so professional and the teachers are great and nice. Keep it up Plouffe! Close Quote

Open Quote I went to this school for three years, and although the education was okay, the condition of the school and like-ability of the teachers is low. Plouffe is an overall good school with thrown-together lessons. 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.
