Open Quote I’m very concerned, because today I experienced the idea that this school prioritizes the holes in my sons jeans rather thank his education.
My son accidentally took a pair of jeans that had holes on the pant leg. Although you could not see his skin through the holes, I received a call from a rude dean that my son was in her office for the jeans. She proceeded to accuse me of needing money and not being able to afford a decent pair of jeans for my son. However, his jeans are not about needing money, they are styled that way due to the crazy fashion.
I prioritize and focus on my sons education and all I asked was for him to stay in school and not miss class. Nonetheless, my son is at the school I am already receiving notifications from campusportal about the work he is missing
I asked to speak with the principal but they say she will return my call tomorrow 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.
