Open Quote I've dealt with terrible problems at this school. In October, I had to make a district complaint because a teacher physically restrained my child as he was trying to get in my car. School leadership failed to address my concerns and was less than empathetic. I had to witness a teacher being physical with my child and it SCARY. I've never dealt with anything like that before and there was no reason for him to be manhandled by a teacher! Cut to just 1 month later and my son was given a black eye. I just learned today he's still in the same classes as the bully who hit him. WHY?! I addressed that with the principal and got zero empathy. Leadership there have a very lackadaisical approach to disciplining students. The child who gave my son a black eye wasn't even suspended from school. My son now has a permanent knot on the side of his eye and no one has even said they're sorry he experienced that. Everything there seems to be reactive and the reactions are just simply inadequate.

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.
