Open Quote They push the dual immersion program on every English speaking family. Over half my son's class is on a "contract" for discipline. The teacher can only do the best she can but still they can only teach to the lower half of the class because they need to "catch up" which usually means the other students are left out. This year only the bilingual students attended a week long field trip. The class also learned more about Hispanic culture and heritage than American (i.e. they held a Cinco de Mayo party and yet failed to mention anything about Thanksgiving). The school is primarily Hispanic which results in a lot of things being left out "for the sake of not offending someone". Last year we fought the school for 6 months just to have a US flag put up. Educationally they are lacking and test scores reflect it. About the test scores though--they only test the students that are not ESL and have been there since day 1. Only half the school gets tested. 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.
