Open Quote The administration has a 'better than you' attitude. The staff leave no doubt that THEY are the experts, you are the mere parent, drop your child off at the door if you must (riding the bus is preferred)and leave the rest to them; after all they know best how to educate your child. Dare to disagree with them on any matter, be it an academic subject, school bullying, or disipline issue, and you will instantly find yourself belittled, your concerns minimized, and even rejected as unfounded. The only reason I don't give Alkek 1 star, is because as far as I know there have been no reports of drugs, alcohol, or serious threats at this school. So, there are worse schools in America, I'm just not sure there are worse schools in RURAL America. 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.
