Open Quote This school has super disrespectful students. I went into a class and the teacher couldn't even get one word out without having to stop. There are always at least 5 to 10 kids in redirect. Also the teachers and faculty members won't do anything about it Which that causes no one to learn. 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.
