Open Quote THE KERR PEASANTRY IS NOWHERE NEAR AS MAGNIFICENT AS THE REALM ROYALTY! Close Quote

Open Quote They only care about test scores. The kids are crushed by the principal getting rid of the best teachers in the school. I guess they didn't teach to the test, but they made my son and daughter happy for school. Shame on this school! Close Quote

Open Quote I have a child that will be in 7th grade this year. This is our second year at Kerr. I was aprehensive at first sending my child to Kerr. The rumor was they were not very "family friendly". Boy was I wrong. Kerr has a new principal whose goal is to reach out to parents and keep them in the loop. He is all over the school, and my child really likes him. Some of the teachers I was concerned about have left. I hope we have gotten some good ones to replace them!!!! 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.
