Open Quote Because we're migrants, my K5 son was treated differently.
The school management wouldn't hesitate to give my son 5 days bus suspension because he stood up in the bus and we've no other transportation to and from school, this was addressed several time to the school management and to dive other discipline than bus suspension as bus suspension will mean school suspension.... they never really cared..
While in other day, another kid cursed my son, spited at him and told him the F word twice, my son complained to the bus driver and i wrote an email to the vice principles but NOTHING HAPPENED.
They Just want certain category of people in this school. 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.
