Open Quote It's difficult to imagine a place that is more inappropriate for children. The "teachers" must be selected based on their contempt for quality education and their disdain for children. If dictionaries had photos, a picture of the faculty would sit nicely next to 'burnout'. Part of me feels bad for the entire situation the faculty are in but at the end of the day, they are the adults. The way they deal with common issues among middle schoolers is disgusting and at times perverted. My wife and I reported one of the 'behavior specialists' to Child Protection, who forwarded the case the Minnesota Board of Education. I'll update this review when the investigation is complete. Keep your kids safe, stay home. 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.
