Open Quote All the teacher wanted to talk about teaching diversity and being kids being able "to express themselves" than grades. I had to keep asking how she was doing academically. I never know what the grades are until the report card comes out. No homework--ever. Child learning the same identical thing she learned in school last year (we moved from a different state). Very lack on bullying...they address it but with the kids speaking to each other and the bully is supposed to apologize. Even with physical hitting, no punishment is given. Teachers are nice and I can always reach them with problems but I think the focus on learning has got to get better. Close Quote

Open Quote The administration is fantastic. I love my daughter's teachers, and currently I am impressed that there is an emphasis on raising a socially contentious and curious learners rather than on test scores. 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.
