Open Quote Let me start by saying there are a few EXCEPTIONAL teachers at the school. However, my families experience with the school discipline policies is RIDICULOUS! My son got hit in the face 5 times. His glasses are now crooked and he has a bruise on his nose and by the eyes. I spoke with the teacher who saw the incident and was told my child did nothing wrong, but that a kid wanted to budge him and the lunch line and my child said no. As a result the child attacked my child. I was told the child said sorry and received no consequence. When I talk to Mrs. Jackson, the principal. She said we do not do consequences here, we do restorative practices. I asked her how the child was going to learn to not hit, or how my child would know that what was done to him would was not okay, and that there are consequences for our actions. She replied with, well kids do not learn anything by being suspended. ERR... This is not the first time something like this has happened to my child or friends of mine in this school. Something needs to change! 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.
