Open Quote There are have been three instances when I have not appreciated the teachers or its principle. This year, I am not fond of the teacher as I find it hard to get her to respond. For example, the kids are currently working on a star test practice, three weeks ago, I sent her an email asking her to please let me know how my son did and she replied with, I will send you the results when I have graded them and we have gone over them next week. Okay, two weeks later, nothing! My son comes home and tells me his grade and asks for my help... okay sure! I send her another email and she basically did not offer to make a copy and just told me that they keep those at school to go over with the kids. Okay, I said fine, when can I come up to the school and review it myself and she finally responds with I will send a copy home. A few years ago I had a problem with a teacher and basically went to the school board about it because the principle has no emotional intelligence. This time, I am considering talking to the assistant and asking her advice on how to handle this situation. This is not the first time I have and this problem. She is not a bad teacher, just young and I am not 100 percent confident in her abilities. I am a concerned parent and I advocate for my kid. 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.
