Open Quote I'm not happy with school. youngest daughter was tested as gifted in 2nd and 3rd grade in a different school districtand we were never told. between 4th grade and this year 7th grade we had been asking every year to be tested because of poor grades and she said she was bored. This year they put her into gifted program and have threated to pull her out of progrm. We have found out they can not legally do this and the school has done little to help her progress saying if she was bored she should catch up on her own. This year we found out the info about her being tested in 2nd and 3rd grade has been in her records all along.Every year we asked fo her to be tested and every year no one saw it in her file. The only one who neww about her being gifted was my daughter who always insisted she was in gifted program at other school and Northwest always stated she never was in 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.
