Open Quote Overcrowded. Teachers will even tell you that the student-teacher ratio makes it hard to address individual student needs. Front staff makes you feel rude for entering the building. Teachers are friendly, but not as creative in the lower grades as I have heard discussed about other county elementary teachers. Curriculum is obviously good, but expectations of such young kids are insanely high and kids feel the pressure. School is not much fun anymore for many due to MSA pressure and bullying, mostly caused by the girls, who never seem to get reprimanded because, like 200 years ago, school is still completely designed for them in almost every way. Maryland is so progressive that I would've hoped my son would get the same education that my daughter will, but boys will still be boys and still struggle just because of that at schools like Nantucket. It's sad being that my expectations were so high because a bunch of parents rave about this school. I think it is delusional. I would just like my child to be more than awesome on the MSA. This school lacks character and fun. 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.
