Open Quote Let me start off by saying I appreciate all the hard work and dedication the teachers do at Weller Road ES. The parking lot is full from 6:30am until 9:00 pm at night with teacher' s cars. It's a brand new school with the same problems. Administrators burn out all of the good teachers and they either quit or ask to transfer. Test scores are low because of this reason. Admin takes the fun out of holidays. If they get a new admin, then I will consider sending my second child there. School is beautiful to look at, but the internal problems are not changing. I would not recommend this 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.
