Open Quote I had to pull my child out of this school. If you have a child who has a disability, be very careful, especially on his/her IEP. They try to change my son disability, but the school I transfer him to, did not agree with the special educators at Back Creek Elementary, and therefore change it back to the correct disability on his IEP. Also, one of the special educator teachers was yelling at my child and my child would come home crying periodically. When I ask if there is another way she can speak to him, she reply, "I don't know another way". I feel if she has the experience and the back ground in special education, then there are several ways to approach a child with a disability. Every child is different and if you only have one approach, that might not work with every child. From my experience, a child who is a minority and has a disability will not be successful at this school because you are being judge as you walk through the door. If you have the passion and the experience, color should not matter. As you can see by the numbers, the diversity is not there. On another note, the principal on the other hand is not open minded and she lacks people skills, and maybe she can't understand how a parent feels because she does not have any biological kids of her own.

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.
