Open Quote My friends kids go to this school, everything is ok, parents satisfied. BUT, I just was driving there today and saw group of students (boys and girls also!) not so far from school, they were laughing and taking things from backpack of one poor boy! Boy was crying on the ground!!!
It just broke my heart!
Parents! Please, don't forget to ask your child how was his day!!! 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.
