Open Quote Administration is poorly run, and spends more time on pointless policy than on education.
Latest in a long line is they took time to create a waiver to drive your own kid to an event in your own car, if they ride the bus no waiver needed. So, mother may I drive my own child in my own car? Yeah, not gonna ask or be granted permission for that. 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.
