Open Quote The teachers do not communicate with the parents and the administrators won't help. They just ignore you. The teachers are biased against the children who participate in the gifted program and are constantly ignoring the rules regarding those children. I'm pulling my daughter out to homeschool her, because I just can't handle the incompetence anymore. 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.
