Open Quote No transparency. Students progress declining every year. Meals are horrible. Administration uses bully tactics on parents. Close Quote

Open Quote This school plagued with non-perform oriented teacher(s). Especially, the teacher(s) are very biased and favoring to their children. These teachers do not teach at all and only give homework to comply with minimum guidelines. The worst thing is, these teacher(s) make schemes to fail students and brand the students "F" grade. These teachers are capable of branding students with "F" (F grade) even who got above 90 percentile in STAAR test. These teachers ruin the confidence and enthusiasm of students. Extremely discouraging and neglecting professional attitude.
These teachers are very good at making their children get all "A+" grades and crush competition against their children. Simple example is, how the teacher have their children in the same class they teach. Is this not 'conflict of interest.
The science fare program, these teachers encourage junk projects (no science at all) rather than value and recognize true scientific project. These teachers mock and humiliate student(s) just by blatantly ignoring performance of student. Extremely self-serving and unethical teachers. 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.
