Open Quote My son went there for one year. Multiple fights on buses, in halls, and even in classrooms. His hand was broken by another student, and they didn't even suspend the student. Not only my son, but other children in the neighborhood would tell me about gang related incidents, graffiti, fights, etc. When I could even get a response, which was only if I went to school in person, as phone calls and emails were never returned, there were always denials of any of these issues occurring.

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.
