Open Quote Lack of administrative support when dealing with teacher issues Close Quote

Open Quote We’ve had students at their school for six years now and have been nothing but impressed by the excellent leadership and individualized attention our children have received. This school staff goes above and beyond when it comes to creating a safe, supportive environment for learning (with a lot of fun sprinkled in as well!) Close Quote

Open Quote I was very disappointed with my daughter's 4th-grade teacher Ms. Perry. She doesn't return emails and went so far as to inform my child that she didn't have time to respond to my email and she would like me to stop emailing her. I email maybe twice a month. I believe involved parents are important. She is the worst teacher I have experienced while at Battle Creek Elementry school. It's sad. :(

My child cannot spell at her grade level. BCE stopped doing spelling test with the kids. It was explained, to me that the kids are to look up a word via the class dictionary. I don't understand how that is beneficial if the child doesn't know they spelled a word incorrectly. This school hasn't prepared the kids for middle school. 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.
