Open Quote My son has adhd and the dual language program set him back (too much to focus on and basically learning half the curriculum since it is one day English and one day Spanish all across through 5th grade now). He tested above average intelligence but his reading grades never went past a C the two years he was there. They gave him spelling words which they NEVER reviewed in class but he was expected to do sntences on them. If I was going to do most of the teaching I might as well do it all myself and avoid the confusion. Right now I'm homeschooling my son and i can see him blossoming, even though it's a tougher curriculum but all in english at last! Close Quote

Open Quote Started my son here today, and I am NOT happy. My son is autistic, and just kind of goes along with what you tell him, so these issues are even huger.....First off when we went to register, we were completely ignored by the staff as they talked to each other casually, then when we DID get someones attention, they BARELY understood english. He apparently has 2 teachers, one day english, one day spanish.........for one thing, I think a kid with special needs needs a little more CONSISTANCY THAN THAT. And another.....we were not told, nor given a choice over him being in a spanish only class half the time. I dont have anything agaist my son learning spanish, but that is a HUGE element of his education that I wasnt told about until he was in it already. For a kid who has a hard time communicating in english, why the HELL would you confuse him with a new language!?!? Then at the end of his first day, I go to pick him up, and I go to the spot where I was told he was going to be waiting....he wasnt there. I was freaking out and caught him JUST before he got on a bus someone was sticking him on, going who knows where....NOT HAPPY, seriously considering homeschooling 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.
