Open Quote I've been engaged with this school for over 10 yrs, and the downhill slide has been nothing short of remarkable. A new administration that thinks it's running a police state, teachers that lack basic assessing skills, repetitive homework scheme that hasn't changes in 8 years. The downward trend on standard test scores is no surprise. 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.
