Open Quote This school is horrible. My child was excited for learning, wanted to do so much with it until the teacher crushed it. She didn't pay any attention what so ever to my child instead on the problem child. My child would bring home work that she did at school and it would be half finished or wrong. When asked if the teacher looked over it, she said that the teacher was to busy, talking to other teachers, and didn't care to or even help when she put her hand up. Even complained to the teacher about it and she did nothing about it. Had to pull my child from her class. Wasn't happy at all. Plus no extra actives for the kids and no P.T.A. Wouldn't recommend this school to any child. 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.
