Open Quote The school is always sending discipline for minor petty and senseless infractions.
Its a prison setting, students can't laugh, can't talk only speak when spoken to.
But you will never get a positive phone call saying how well your child is doing in school. 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.
