Open Quote We hate this school. My daughter hates it too. We moved dfw area bk out here and man let me tell you, this place is half assed about everything. I think they are just trying to figure out as it goes along. One day of the week we have a project 2 days later(after its started) oh you dnt need to do that anymore. They test low so they paid the scores with extra credit. Seriously can't wait to find a new house because my daughter went from loving school and doing great. To struggling a good bit... to still getting a-b report card somehow... padding the stats 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.
