Open Quote I have to find out about children picking on my son from him, they don't take him to the bathroom when he ask. He has come home with bruises and the teacher has nothing to say. Some of these teachers that work here need to be fired for child neglect. 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.
