Open Quote My child was being bullied in this school. I was reporting it to the principal and even the district but nothing was done to assist. The principal and assistant principal do not know how to effectively communicate with parents. They do not take time out to listen to the complaints of the parents especially if it is a topic that tarnishes the image of the school. 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.
