Open Quote My family made the transition to Reeths Puffer in October 2018. My son entered at the first grade level. We have been disappointed since he started. His academic level came crashing down, making no advantages let alone retaining the education level he previously had. My son has never been in trouble before, yet by the second month he was being "written" up almost every day. He watched poor disgusting behavior from the students at Reeths Puffer, and when he started to mimic what he was seeing he was punished day after day until he started getting out of school suspension. This school thought it was necessary to suspend a first grader for behaving as the rest of the students were. I have sat in on classes, and could not believe what I saw, my son was not the only one. I witnessed exactly what my son was getting in trouble for day after day. My son would come home talking about extremely inappropriate topics that he learned from other students. He would reference children having spoken to him about sex, "humping" and even demonstrating what other children have displayed in regards to sexual movements. My son had come home so terrified by the "scary" things other children had discussed with him to the point where he was too afraid to be left unattended , we even had to rearrange his bedroom so that his bed was closer to the doorway just so that he could sleep through the night. This does not even touch on how poor the teachers and faculty handled the situations. My son had even been told once by his teacher she would "lock him out" of the classroom. This only contributed to the newly adapted anxiety/scared behavior he was displaying. My son was clearly having a bad experience and unfortunately the adults at this school left my son behind to try and conquer these ridiculous battles alone. I was told that my son "needed more tools in his toolbox" rather than bettering my son's experience here I believe it became comedy to the immature, and bored adults/teachers at Reeths Puffer. The teachers at Reeths Puffer are not there for the right reasons. They are there for half days, snow days, and their beloved summer time. My son is now seeking psychological help after attending this school. Please save yourself the stress, tears, anxiety and depression that both you and your child will certainly experience if your child is not a teachers pet/cookie cutter individual. 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.
