Open Quote The politics at this school are horrible, especially for children who are not white and don't have a parent teaching at the school. Depending on who you are and your skin color it seems punishments change and the rules are altered to accommodate those teachers whom have children. Close Quote

Open Quote The phones never work...talk about scary. The lunch cost $2 dollars which we kept giving our kid money for but they just keep charging his account. He finally convinced the lunch lady to take the cash ($5 bill) he gets no change back and no answer as to why he didn't get any change back. I think that might be stealing. I can't get any answers as to why the lunch lady stole my sons money because you guessed it the GD phones don't work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 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.
