Open Quote This school has been a great Disappointment!! I have had more then my share of bad experiences with the teachers &Vice principal they are very unprofessional. My child has been in a reading program the last two years there to help him advance which has done anything but good at least in their eyes. My child has been there since day one and has never had to take a spelling test. They have never made AYP its no wonder why kids are struggling. They are sent home with new stuff and have no idea how to do it they either get it or they are left behind. My child's last teacher was by far the rudest and would make fun of him in the class room in front of other students . I can't tell you how many times he would come home in tears. My husband and I have met with the teacher Vice principal and Principal over these matters and got no where . The school was shut down for two days with no notice to parents if it wasn't for the news I would of had no idea what was going on. My child is terrified to return this year. I could go on and on about the problems with this school But I will just end by saying he won't be back. 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.
