Open Quote Let’s start by saying my child’s kindergarten teacher spoke Ebonics.. really?!. She also played favorites. For instance when it came time to announce the awards she would only say all the awards given to black or mexican kids and announced one if any for the white kids. My child was AR, Star reader, and honor roll all year, she didn’t say anything about that. Over all, the staff seem nice but the school is unorganized. They do lack safety when it comes to letting kids just go with whomever. On Field day the teachers were letting the kids run everything and Not watching the kids. The playground is horrible.. no shade and the ground has no grass its all clay. All of my kids clothes were impossible to clean. AND I don’t understand The mindset of the person that set up the zoning. It’s way over populated there. 26/1 not what it says here 17/6.. what is that anyways?? Three Rivers Elementary around the corner has 14/1. They should make it easy... kids north of three rivers rd needs to go to River Oaks and kids south of Three Rivers rd go to Three Rivers Elementary. 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.
