Open Quote This is a brand new school with failing grades, failing staff and failing policies. They don't have programs at all set up to help children who are meeting/exceeding standards. They are too busy trying to help the gangster and low achieving students. The other kids, who want to excel and achieve, are given limited opportunity here. 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.
