Open Quote My 5th grade son came from a well known and wonderful school district. At the time of entering American Montessori he was an all A student. By the time report cards rolled out, he was all D's and one E! Shortly after his teacher was fired, and the principle found it necessary to tell the whole class. (many students were very upset.) Since then my son has complained about students being violent (throwing chairs, kicking other classmates, and also one instance of someone being stabbed in the hand with a pencil. It is truly sad my son went from loving school to hating it. I WILL NOT BE COMING TO THIS SCHOOL NEXT YEAR! 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.
