Open Quote My son is a 18 years old Autistic. At one time he came home with a black and blue bruise in the right arm. I went over to the principal and complain they did nothing. On January 17,2019 he came home with an ugly bruise in the right elbow, i talk to the assistant principal Mr. Cruciata, he told me they did not not know what happen to my son. I believe they cover them self so they do not incriminate people that work for them. 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.
