Open Quote They need another administrator to run this school. Current principal is a basket case. No tardy policy and is always fighting with staff and students. She needs to be removed from the school in order for it to become better. Maybe the New chief will look at this school and see why the school is getting an F 12/2015 maybe he/she can remove the principal from the school and respect the community, teachers and students. I would not send my children to this 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.
