Open Quote I would estimate that 75% of my son's kindergarten class was non-English speaking. It seemed like the whole class was slowed WAY down to help those kids understand what was going on. They started the school year learning about colors and nursery rhymes - things that kids should know before preschool. I was shocked at how slow everything went, the fact that there was absolutely no grading or corrective action on things like getting math problems (3+2) wrong, forming letters incorrectly, being lazy at drawing or coloring, or even following assignment directions. As a daycare, I would rate Morse high, as a school, however, my expectation of learning taking place was apparently far too high. 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.
