Open Quote The teachers at Wickersham are wonderful and hard working. My son who currently attends, loves all of the teachers he has had at Wickersham. However, the principal of the school dampens the school setting. Every time I or anyother parent tries to contact him, he is either out of the school or in a meeting. Forget trying to get him to call you back it will never happen. On more than one occasion I have seen him be little a employee infront of parents or students. In the 8 years my children have attended this school I have only seen him show up twice at either parent conferences or at other school functions. Like I said my son loves going to school here everyday and learns so much. If only they had a principal that matched the hard work and enthusiam of the staff at Wickersham. 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.
