Open Quote Not much homework, but they destroy the fun in learning with busy work versus learning work. Patronizing to parents. No trust or flexibility with parents. And not willing to look at their poor policies which make kids dislike subjects more. Not focused on working with parents, more dictating to parents.
Administration instead of looking into the issue, silenced the issue and cover it up. Effectively that teaches bullying. 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.
