Open Quote The Administration does not recognize disabilities or learning disorders. Students are not able to be identified or receive special education services--no appropriate and free public education for those who struggle or have a special need. They cater to the students who can test high and are immediate compliers with no discipline issues. My son's disability is a common one--ADHD. 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.
