Open Quote Awful experience with kindergarten. Negligent teachers, who do not pay attention what small and big children are doing behind the doors and during lunch. As a parent very disappointed that my child is not safe there. Cameras are not attended or supervised. Little girls are harrassed and teachers are sloppy. Had to alert principal regarding safety of my child and there are multiple victims. Need police investigation whose job to supervise children: parents or teachers. My Child is under stress and fear to face school again ever at all 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.
