Open Quote I have a special needs child who used to have a problem with running out of the classroom. The principle told me that it wasn't the staff's responsibility to stop him from eloping out of the building so I had to come in everyday to sit with him. All they cared about was getting my son out of their school. The staff at several occasions lied to my face about my son. After my son went to a different school, all of his behaviors disappeared. They do not care about special needs students because they just don't want to deal with them. 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.
