Open Quote Unfortunately this is a school that is set up for failure. I have 3 children going to this school and have had numerous of problems from other students and staff. I have had multipal meetings asking to have my children moved to another safe classroom setting where they might have a slight chance of learning and were denied. They are understaffed and over populated. There is no hope or help at this school location and as a parent the expectations I have for my children were let down on EVERY aspect. The school is unsafe and somebody needs to go in and do a investigation on the staff and administration and school curriculum. My 1st grader came home with a paper from his teacher that was list of all the "bad" kids on it with the stuff they do and say and was filled with cuss words. To give a child this paper that is marked with cuss words in no envelope is so unacceptable unprofessional and inappropriate. And is there some student teacher confidentiality? This was a sheet of paper with all the different "bad" students as she stated on it. This school should be shut down. They are in violation of so many rules. 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.
