Open Quote I was impressed with this school in Kindergarten and First Grade - all wonderful teachers, but at 28 kids in 2nd grade, it's obvious that my kid (who I'm sure is not alone) is getting lost in the shuffle. Of course I blame public school funding, but that does nothing to help the teachers or my child who is in this situation and seems to be behind for her age group due to lack of attention/tutoring verses lack of skills. I am disappointed and considering placing my kid in a charter school if at all possible. Otherwise, moving will be high on the list. (Again, not blaming the teachers. They are doing all they can to manage.) 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.
