Open Quote This school is definitely unorganized, PTA is a joke and their events have zero volunteers. My son's teacher didn't even send an introductory phone call or email when he started school. Knew nothing about water bottle, snack schedule, work loads or about the teacher in general until we attended open house (2 weeks after school started). Teachers will take days to email parents back, students never do projects or fun activities, its all copied worksheets. When teachers are out instead of getting sub's the school splits the class up and gives them to other teachers. Yes, they go into another classroom and sit in the back. Horrible horrible school. My son is "excelling" when he was struggling at his last school. He is now one of the top ones in his class, his teacher gives no homework or communicates on nothing he can work on. School is just a joke 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.
