Open Quote This school is so behind in compliance to Federal Law for special education. Leadership has a reactive approach to solving student challenges, rather than a proactive approach. Leadership also prefers punitive remediation for students, which is disappointing. An eloping kindergartner gets a police response on the playground. Children are restrained by uncertified personnel. Bad paraprofessionals are moved amongst special needs child frequently, passing staffing problems on to from child to child rather than taking appropriate action to hire a person with appropriate skills and training qualifications.

The principal and special education director are barely accountable to the superintendent, who is barely accountable to the school board. The school board ignores problems and would prefer to be sucked into an expensive due process situation.

i would not move to Arlington for the schools, especially if your student is not strong academically. The school as a whole is tested with accommodations yet continues to fail to meet adequate yearly progress. After School programming consists of a homework club where two staff members do as little as possible to interact with students. 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.
