Open Quote The principal at this school does not oversee his teachers well. The teachers basically ignore parental requests and even doctors notes. There is very little parental involvment. Much is made about teaching the english language. Little is made about actually teaching anything else. 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.
