Open Quote Not enough focus goes in to the kids that have the ability to exceed in the curriculum planned out for the year. My child finds it all too easy and therefore isn't really challenged to match capabilities. Disappointed for this reason and a view I have found is shared with a number of other parents.

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.
