Open Quote Second grade teacher looks for reasons to call CPS if your child has more than one assignment not handed in on time. Abusing the already stressed out child protective program to bully parents is not ok! Terrible experience with staff and CPS case completely unfounded! 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.
