Open Quote Mr Harvey the principle has just achieved his PHD, congrats ! Unfortunately if you have a concern or dare you question an action or policy in his school, watch out !
Remember that he is the boss of the staff including teachers and all. Of course his school is 70% hispanic and from what the school says most of the parents of can't speak very good english. Even though translations are given on everything, who's going to complain about anything ! Let's not jump on the Race wagon yet! Yes were White or lighter complextion in the left over 30% of which we are the 10%. My concern is that I'm scared not of being a minority, but how the now majority is not treated with respect. My GOD their of six years of age and children, can you not respect them for being children of any RACE when concern is raised ? To point I have ask the man on multiple emails simple questions without answer. I then emailed Teachers and Staff with concerns about an answer if possible. These same staff and teachers had previously been very helpful, not this time! Not even a reply of sorry I can't help you. Granted when your 1st grader comes home 40 minutes late so you call the school looking for them, they have no answer. Yes the only simple answer from him was your child was absent the day the notice was given. I wish for others that this is the only concern but its only one of the simple ones. They can't even begin to address the big ones, never the less any of the simple small ones. This if quickly becoming the country of the Do Nothing...It Will Fix Itself.
Thanks for Listening!! 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.
