Open Quote Very poor communication with parents. Counselor very seldom answers phone so you have to depend on her to call back. I had an issue with my 2nd grader being bullied by two 4th graders. Waited all day for a call from the counselor and heard nothing. If you ever have a kid and feared for their safety I'm sure you can relate to how unnerving this can be. Teacher didn't even call to find out what happened. She just knew my son came from the principals office and assumed he was the one causing problems and showed no discretion in handling the matter and he got in trouble for having an attitude. Who wouldn't have an attitude if they started off their day being bullied by 2 kids that are older and should know better. 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.
