Open Quote The principal and a few staff members at Douglas MacAuthur, I've noticed on several occasions, are very rude and condesending to the Campagna Kids staff. To my knowledge, The Campagna Center amd Campagna kids have served our community for many many years. I know the staff at Campagna works dilligently to serve these families amd I think they deserve a lot more respect. 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.
