Open Quote I agree that the classes are large, but I wouldn't say that most of the teachers can't handle it or get angry. I have seen Mrs. Blauser (kindergarten teacher) immediately get the entire classroom's attention just by raising her hand and speaking softly to the students. Mrs. VanDamme can motivate ANY student to succeed no matter what the obstacles. And the school has a wonderful gym teacher and top-notch music instructor. Close Quote

Open Quote Class sizes are much too large. I have seen many teachers become impatient while trying to control so many children. Kindergarten classes in particular are way too large for the attention a child of this age needs. 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.
