Open Quote School administrator demonstrates extremely poor execution of district policies, does not follow through on prescribed course of action on solutions/resolutions, is not receptive to constructive feedback on decisions made. The school is run "her way" and there is no other way and she is quite comfortable in providing "lip" service. Cronyism is an epidemic issue is this facility. Those on the inside of the operations get what they want, the rest of the families and students are on their own. This includes teachers, supportive staff which supports an elitist society and preferential treatment for those related & respective students. Teachers and students are allowed/permitted to create and facilitate hostile environments, there is no proactive efforts or corrective actions made. Bullying is ignored.
This school gets one star for its music program! 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.
