Open Quote Kids are out of control.With language and physical bullying.Staff don't listen to students when told they have a problem.There philosophy is we can't watch every child.The security guard is rude and yells at females.The dean talks down to everyone. 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.
