Open Quote Worst Staff ever. The staffs are bullies and need to go back to school. They are very uneducated. Violation of a child civil right is illegal and when a complaint is made, they will start treating your child as a second hand citizen. I am considering further action.

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.
