Open Quote Worst School Ive ever seen. They know there is a 40min traffic jam for the school yet they still are giving out detention to the kids for being late. This morning I had my disable wife with me and needed to park in a parking space to let my daughter out of the back seat and the creepy looking guy at the stop sign started yelling at me. I told him to kiss it cause I don't deal with creepy looking people. He then sends the principle after me and I told her I had to park cause my wife is disable so I could let my daughter out and she didnt care. 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.
