Open Quote Be nice if the math teacher would actually teach instead of all the ONLINE activities. Before a student excels at any subject, they first have to be taught.
My sons grade has dropped from B to D since this school. Math teachers should be math teachers not someone you pulled from another subject to cover for the school year.

Teacher too lazy 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.
