Open Quote I have worked in this and other charter schools and I will say this, special needs children DO NOT get a fair education in these schools. They sit with a para in a general ed setting and are completely lost. They are given their own books or worksheets to work on while the rest of the class works on something else. They get very distracted by the other kids and the teachers all act like they're too busy to be bothered. Then with all the clapping and shouting they do during the day is ANNOYING AND UNECESSARY 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.
