Open Quote My child is currently in 2nd grade. She switched from a Blue Ribbon School when we transferred to Hixson Elementary. The first thing I noticed was the lack of communication from the teacher. The next thing I learned is that her teacher lost everything (excused absence forms I was sending, homework folder, reading logs) After several attempts of communication I had to reach out to the principal. That was resolved but it kept happening. I am now zoning my child to a different school as this is by far one of the worst schools I have seen in a long time! Its sad because people blame the lower incomes but the kids are great its the teachers that don't care. Sad to see when its in elementary and this is when the kids will learn how to love school or hate it and these kids will hate school if this is what the example is. 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.
