Open Quote It is a battlefield for bullies, which includes some of the teachers, and the principal who is the commander in chief..The African American students are labeled “bad & troublemakers” by Principal McGuire... There are 28 kids to 1 teacher..lazy teachers set up the students to FAIL by testing them on areas they didn’t teach, all in the name of “covering the curriculum.”
When there is an issue with black vs black, they couldn’t care less. However, if it’s black vs
white student, principal McGuire always punish the black students even when they’re the victim, while he presents the white student with a badge of honor..This is the only school in the 20th century where white students are allowed to call black kids NEGRO without consequence. Some students are now taking anti-depressants from emotional abuse received from principal McGuire and some of the teachers, not to mention the physical abuse from students..
Some parents have withdrawn their children to homeschool, among other options..
PARENTS, DO YOUR RESEARCH! Check STATISTICS, RATINGS & REVIEWS, This school is a WAR ZONE with a RACIST leader, named principal McGuire.. 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.
