Open Quote The school says we will have these classes, these qualified professionals to teach the classes, AND the student must pass the classes to earn the certificate.

But, what happens is...they hire questionable teachers, teachers leave and classes have months of rotating substitutes who do not know the specialty "tech" courses and can not teach the specialty "tech" courses. So the school will make changes to their (the schools)responsibilities and what they said they will do, and it is okay. But they do not allow the students any of the same respect.

The school has the attitude that they can makes changes to the program when they do not have qualified teachers or change the program going forward because they failed to meet what they said the would do. Kids on the other hand must still meet all their requirements even with the schools failure to teach. 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.
