Open Quote The principal of this school is a serious problem. The teachers lack real support because they are constantly trying to get the kids behavior under control. The kids RUN THE SCHOOL .... the principal does not hold them accountable. The kids enjoy going to the office like it’s a party and they don't care about being kicked out of class. I saw with my own eyes the principal is more like a friend than a firm leader. 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.
