Open Quote Inexperienced teachers, poor administration, at times physically unsafe. Needs far more teachers with permanent certification and more class aides. Administration needs to be more honest about what is really going on. Had to remove our child from this environment. He is thriving somewhere else. 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.
