Open Quote Since my children were transferred to LA Nelson, their test scores have gone down and they do not demonstrate a great grasp of the materials. I am doubtful they will be ready when they are advanced to Middle School. My son went from passing his TAKS tests to failing them. A huge drop in test scores from third grade to fourth. My daughter is now lagging on her reading scores and math scores.

Denton ISD has a poor record and seems to be maintaining that standard with LA Nelson. 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.
