Open Quote The majority of my child's teachers have been wonderful. The problem is the principle! She stresses the teachers out and disbelieves children. I can NOT understand people who refuse to protect children from abuse. #me too #timeisup Close Quote

Open Quote It is a small and quaint school with a wonderful principal. However, the owners are the one behind the scenes blocking her from protecting the kids from inappropriate behavior of the male teachers. One of the teachers takes out his bottles of medicine while teaching and takes them in front of the kids along with many questionable comments to the kids. The other male teacher shares all of his mood malfunctions daily with the kids. One day, during one of his a melt downs,he packed up all of his belongings in front of the kids and told them he was quitting which upset the kids, and then he later ended up not quitting. The other minor thing is that there's no cafeteria. Close Quote

Open Quote Silver Sands is a great school. We will be attending our third year in the fall. The teachers are fantastic. There are few things lacking, but the most important things are in place. No playground or lunch program, but the academics are there for sure. 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.
