Open Quote Lots of violence. Poor faculty and staff. Teachers obviously want to be at the school less than the students. No control over students, leading to classes being separated at recess. Children are forced to play in specific groups during outside play time, limiting them socially. 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.
