Open Quote The school administration is very unhelpful. All tracks and teachers are chosen by a computer and parents hands are tied. They feel all their teachers are equal and won't let you get your child into a more challenging teacher. In first grade my daughter watches movies at least twice a week that are not educational. Don't bother trying to talk to the principal or vice principal, they're equally unhelpful. 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.
