Open Quote We have had problems with this school from the first semester my child was there. The amount of bullying, disrespect and aggressive behavior that goes on is unacceptable. The school principals and staff tries but they are not able to control these kids. My child has received threats, and have been cyber bullied, she got punched by a boy and all they did was call him and tell him to stay away from her. I have no idea what else needs to happen for someone to take action,I mean , we had to do a police report about that first incident, for God's sake! That's how bad it was. The worse experience I've ever had with public school , period. Would not recommend at all. 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.
