Open Quote This school has been terrible. My children are'nt even allowed to go to the bathroom when they need to. There is not enough time be going while you have to nearly run to your next class to not be late. A majority of the teachers jsut play in their phones and computers all day anyway, why not let the child go to the bathroom? 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.
