Open Quote I am in the middle of transferring my two 6th graders out of Ross. The school is such a hostile place for my children to be. Sexual harassment goes on in the halls; as well as physical assaults, and the staff does not work to stop it. This is on top of the excessive amount of bullying that goes on. My children report that the teachers spend much of their time in class on their cell phones instead of teaching. I've brought my complaints to the school several times and they say they are going to "fix" it, yet nothing is ever done. Furthermore, if you want to talk to the actual principal of the school you can forget it. They will not lot you. It's like its the middle school mafia and no one can talk to the Don without going through all of his goons, and even then they still won't let you talk to him. This is hardly conducive open communication in which parents should feel free to express concern's when the assistant principals cannot do their job. 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.
