Open Quote This school is out of control. We have had issues so we scheduled an emergency conference with the teacher and princpal, but the principal thought it okay to show up a half hour late. Our child has witnessed kids running out of the classroom and feces being thrown on the ceiling of the bathroom. This is poor at best. 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.
