Open Quote Karen Western lacks competency.
Inconsistencies throughout the year-with spelling, grammar, mathematics. There seems to be a lack of communication between the schools staff as well. If you want your child to get a good education and not have these gov’t educators try to “dumb down” your child...DO NOT SEND THEM TO KAREN WESTERN. The staff talks down to parents and does not work with families morals, ethics, etc. 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.
