Open Quote If you have a problem at the school they are quick to sweep it under the rug - Oh, what would everyone think of their perfect school if they all knew the truth?
The special education team will not help you or your child they will ignore all of his needs and it is because they ignore all the kids in general.
The rich politician or police officer kids run the schools and the teachers pretend to not see anything going on.
The special education staff are fake nice and just give you the run around. You will never get help for your child here unless you have lots of money or know someone who knows someone like the mayor of town. Good luck! 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.
