Open Quote Not a very good experience during the years my kids attended. Kids constantly disrupting the class room environment which forces teachers to stop constantly. Classroom size are severely overcrowded. No disciplinary action taken when kids misbehave at this school. If your kid is one of the smarter ones they will be pushed to help other kids that are still learning the material being taught. If your child needs help they will get it from other kids in groups instead of from the teacher or aid. To many of the teachers this is just a job and it shows, they could care less, a handful their actually care. I was told by my kids their teacher was constantly on her phone or would hide to take calls in class.

Their Teacher at the time in 2nd grade was not very effective apparently all she did was yell at the kids in the classroom which solved nothing. I hear she has been moved into the kindergarten class, probably so those kids can't let their parents know how much she yells, feel bad for those kids to have their learning experience begin with a teacher like that.

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.
