Open Quote Didnt put our son on a 504 plan because he has adhd, and is a transfer student. Failed to put him on the plan so they could kick him out due to him being a transfer student. His academic scores are excellent, 1st grade reading at 3rd grade level, already knows multiplication, division, and fractions. Just getting bored, finishing before the other students, and being disruptive. This tells me that they would prefer to kick out any mildly disruptive students if given a choice, but cannot because they aren’t transfers. We told them we were withdrawing him and they had the 504 paperwork the very same day. They should be ashamed of themselvesyou know who you are, and who we are. 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.
