Open Quote Even though I did not have a locker, the staff and administration made my assignment a positive one. Most days I was assigned classes. The students greeted me in the hallway, on the streets and on the local trains. The staff, security and the students seem to know each other by name. Student absenteeism seems to be checked on early in the day by calling home. The faculty appears to work very hard and appears to be very prepared and technologically skilled.

Plenty of paper was available to the staff. The one time that a copier was not working, it was fixed in less than 30 minutes.

The site calendar is current into 2015. 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.
