Open Quote This school is the wost school I ever been in. It don’t even deserve one star. nobody cares about you in this school and the teachers doesn’t want to help you except like 2 teachers This school is the wost school I ever been in. It don’t even deserve one star. nobody cares about you in this school and the teachers doesn’t want to help you except like 2 teachers thank you mr. Rotella And mr. Kirk you are the only teachers that care and help. The guidance counselor is trash. Child study team is disgusting. This school is the worst that I sometimes think of hurtin my self but I don’t think about now . Nobody helps you with hard work like ASL class they let you do everything on your own even though you don’t understand. for example in asl i did not no how to sign and I did not understand a test in the class and the teachers yes 2 teachers you think you get more help but you don’t. didn’t even gave us a study Gude or help the people that did not understand. You got to do everything on your own even though you don’t understand it. And the students here on mean and rude and you don’t hardly make any friends. If you do make any friends they don’t care about you. For example you do so much for them but they don’t do nothing for you. And the the school it self is gross and very dirty they don’t even clean the floors or wipe the cafeteria tables there was a leak in the cafeteria a sewage leak that smelled and they didn’t even clean up the sewage water for a whole mouth and it smelled for a whole month while we was eating. Instead of putting us in a different room to eat. The cafeteria food was absolutely disgusting and gross and they don’t give you a lot of food they give you a spoon full of food and there was hair in the food and the milk Is always spoiled. I Told the cafeteria ladies that there was a piece of hair in my food but they said to pick it out and keep it and eat it instead of giving me a fresh new plate of food. my parents are paying $4.00 Every month for this food. And even if we do express our feelings about this school we would get in trouble for it and go to detention. so that being said I am begging you to not go to this school and if you do go to this school you are going to go crazy and lose your mind and be sad and depressed.

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.
