Open Quote My son has been going to this school since the first grade, and he will be going into 5th this fall. He enjoys going to school and has come a long way academically. They have a no bullying policy which I really like. Pulaski has many great features and I would recommend it to other parents. I rated it 4 stars because they did get low scores but I also know they are changing the curriculum to fix that issue. Close Quote

Open Quote The staff/helpers have made hard for the great qualified teachers working here. It's a mad house. With no one accountable the helpers/aids have no experience and treat the children like prisoners. The objective and goals are great but not supported the break down of communications has hindered this schools chance of being one of the best. 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.
