Open Quote My son is in Kindergarten and this school is the worst I have ever seen, protocol for ADHD is getting tested for a IEP, not my son he got a 504 with nothing on it. He is isolated in class and had no friends, he has to sit with a disabled child who can't even talk. They never let him have lunch with the other children, the Principal, nurse, and guidance counselor are the most rude school staff I ever met. My son is already behind, he doesn't know how to write his letters still. This mother is not happy, may not let him return after winter break. 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.
