Open Quote My children spent two school years at A+ Arts Academy on Fair Ave. After this second year I have decided to pull their registration and look for another school. I feel as a parent I have failed my students, they both are honor roll students with good test scores so I assumed that they were receiving the best educational experience that a public school had to offer and boy was I wrong. At the end of the school year I received the test scores from my daughters state testing which showed that she was above average but was only slightly higher than her scores she received the year prior. This tells me that for a whole school year my daughter learned absolutely nothing new. And to confirm that I took my children to another school that is rated number 7 in the state based off of testing scores and though they excelled in reading and language arts ( something they were doing prior to A+) they didn't meet average in math scores. I am truly disappointed because I believed in A+. Moving beyond testing scores the Fair Ave school is in utter chaos and when parents come to the school with valid concerns(child safety, bullying, issues with staff) the principal Mr.Faulks is very condescending and disrespectful he absolutely doesn't care about the well -being of your child. Furthermore he treats the parents as if we are all under educated garbage. I have two degrees and am a working professional and if I treated any of my clients the way that he is allowed ( I say this because administration is aware of his behavior) to treat parents and students I would be UNEMPLOYED. I am not leaving this review to trash this school they are doing a fine job at doing so themselves. I am leaving this review so that other parents who want more for their children will be aware the A+ does not mean more but less. For those teachers that are excellent educators I feel for you and wish that find a position in a school that appreciates your thirst for teaching and your collective talents. I thank you (Mr.Bell, Dr.Samuels, Mr.Drew, Mr.King,Mrs. Teriaga) you are wonderful and A+ doesn't deserve you 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.
