Open Quote The school needs to work on its relationship with working families. While they have increased their population of minority and lower income students, they still have policies which favor families fortunate to have a stay at home parent. For example, when they begin a school break, they dismiss students at 11:30. That is an extremely difficult time for working parents to grab their child. Also, the times for parents to come see their child's projects is at 10:30. Again, how does a working parent do this? In addition, they require parents to do a MANDATORY 4 hours of school volunteer work a month. As a working parent, these expectations feel rather condemning. 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.
