Open Quote My daughter was bullied during sixth and seventh grade and little was done about it. I had to fight very hard to make sure she was protected at school and even had to file a police report because the school wasn’t doing enough, so happy she is doing virtual learning this year and will be on her way to high school.

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.
