Open Quote I am SO glad that we were able to move so that I did not have to deal with this school anymore. Of the schools my children have attended in MD this school is by far THE WORST!!! The PPW as well as the office were most unhelpful. There were multiple issues while my children attended and in order to have anything resolved I had to call the Board of Education. At one point when my children (Kindergarten and second grade) started taking the bus they were dropped off in front of the jail instead of their daycare!! I could never get a straight answer out of anyone who works there and EVERY SINGLE PERSON tells you something different. The most unorganized school ever!! The ONLY bright spot to this school is the teachers. Both were amazingly fantastic! Close Quote

Open Quote All I hear from the kids are "we have another substitute". I ask them daily what they've learned in school, and most of the time they'd tell me it's the same stuff they were learning from months ago. This is a sorry piece of crap school. 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.
