Open Quote MAJOR FAILURE IN THIS REGARD .

MY CHILD SAFETY AND MY OWN SAFETY HAVE BEEN JEOPARDIZED AT THIS SCHOOL Close Quote

Open Quote I moved my daughter to Northeast Tacoma Elementary for her 1st Grade year from the Puyallup School District, Karshner Elementary, come to find out my daughter was so far behind from her year at Karshner that she had to work extra hard just to be close to where the other students were in her grade level. Her teacher at Northeast Tacoma Mrs. Tuttle worked very hard with my daughter. When she first got in 1st grade she couldn't spell didn't even know all of her alphabet and couldn't count past 7. This was really bad the worst part is that her teacher from Puyallup didn't even tell me that she was struggling. By the end of her first grade year with Mrs. Tuttle and myself working really hard with my daughter now she counts to over 100 can read 299 words and her spelling is at a 70% sometimes higher. She started 2nd grade yesterday and is actually excited about going back to school. I love this elementary school. 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.
