Open Quote The principal of this school is a disgrace to all the wonderful educators that have worked so hard on behalf of parents and children for so many years. To threaten parents with arrest or put the children in ISS for getting out of the car during pick up is the most insane thing ever. Parents can not walk their children to and from school, even if they live across the street. Shame on you all. 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.
