Open Quote Horrible. Completely and utterly horrible. The principle is the only person you can ever get to follow up on anything, and even then all he can say is that he has no idea what is going on. My child is in the first grade, and as near as I can tell they spend all day coloring. The teacher is a flake. I have called her a few times with concerns about some of the things my child has mentioned, and each time the teacher has been incoherent on the phone. I had to tell her my child's name 3 times before she understood me, and then she tried to say that my child was not even in her class. FINALLY 10 minutes into the call she remembered who my child was. Scary!!! My child's kindergarten teacher was equally checked out. She blew off our parent teacher conference twice, and never called. It took 5 months for us to be able to have a conversation with that teacher about our child's progress in school. The entire culture with the staff at South St is to do the absolute minimum, and at times they fall terrifyingly short of even doing that. 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.
