Open Quote Teachers are good. Administrators are somewhat helpful. The principal that is leaving is terrible. I feel bad for the parents in the next school district she is moving to. The kids attending there are behaving beyond their years. It has been so bad for our child we are being forced to move, because of harrassment and lack of enforcement of school policies. We tried to work with the school but the follow up was to just sweep problems under the rug. School district placement was less than helpful too when we tried to move our child to better ranked school in the district. We know of two other families that are going through the same thing.

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.
