Open Quote This school is a terrible one. In all of our military career we have experienced many different types of schools but this one takes the cake. My daughters teacher would grab my daughters hand, extend her finger and push it onto the book. She also grabbed my daughters head with both hands and forced her to turn a different direction. After reporting it, the principle moved my daughter from the class, the teacher admitted to doing it and said it was because my daughter was not paying attention....but yet nothing was done to her and she is still there teaching. My daughter was diagnosed with ADD and yet rather than working with my daughter and myself the teacher would only send notes home day after day. She would read my notes to her in front of the class humiliating my daughter. I went to the board of education and had my daughter transferred to another school and she is doing WONDERFULLY! Stay clear of this school!! 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.
