Open Quote I've visited many schools as a teaching artist and this is by far the most dangerous, unkempt school I have worked in. The teacher turnover is extraordinarily high as they lost around 40 teachers last year in April and teachers are very discouraged, scared and live in fear not only of the bullying, inept administration but even some students. Most students just want to get along and get a good education but fear and loathing of the principal run deep and are worsening as she is ineffectual and does not listen to their needs and wants. I feel very sorry for the student body and even some teachers. 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.
