Open Quote I think that Bruce Drysdale is a not so good school when it comes to children they say with a learning disability. I believe that the school teachers want to try they best to help to their ability but they don't put forth effort on helping the child. They just put them in a EIP class and doesn't have a Diagnose on what's wrong I feel that this school should be shut down because they sent out letters to parents saying they can change their children's schools because they had a low Nation Grade.

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.
