Open Quote Most of the staff have fun for the hills and it looks like the kids or other parents did too. I'm like were are all the kids and how are they still open. This school is wasting tax dollars some classrooms have only 9-13 kids. Some might think that is good but the teachers I trusted left and all I see are fresh faced babies who don't know the problems coming their way. Alcott has been here for years but it looks like it's time to shut the doors. 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.
