Open Quote Hit or miss with the teachers from year to year and the administration. Clear favoritism shown to some students and not others. Parents not adequately informed about areas where students may need help. Some teachers using ParentVue well and not others. PTA more focused on single, wealthier parents who can stay home with kids. Even meetings arranged to not accommodate working parents. Not an ideal school for diversity (not only race but religion, too). Asian, black, and other kids bullied with little done other than posters and student assemblies. Would gladly move my child out if there were other real options. Reviews on this site must have been coordinated as they are not reflective of actual school environment and issues. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is a sinking ship. We have watched the quality of education slip over the last few years. On the positive side, there are some outstanding teachers but the leadership both at the school and the school district undermine the talent of the teachers at the school. A new principal is in place and he has more on the ball than the previous administrator but believes in implementing major changes in the curriculum that have been proven to fail in other localities. I doubt the test scores needed for this school to remain accredited will be made this year and D.J. will no longer be a regular elementary school. We had three children there but have removed them all and placed them in private schools. It was a financial hit but necessary. 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.
