That 16 students to 1 teacher ratio is a blatant lie. Our kids are 23 to a kindergarten class and close to 30 to a 3rd grade class. The teachers are rude and talk down to the children. Which is no surprise because the "Master Teacher" likes to run around telling kids to "shut up" . If the head of the teachers isn't held to any kind of standards, what kind of standards will the regular teachers be held to? Obviously none. My kindergartener comes home crying that "my teacher yells so much momma", and when I sent a letter to my 3rd grade IEP math students teacher asking for tips on how to help him better his grades she muttered "that's just ridiculous".... This school is so out of hand that not only are the regular students being mistreated, but I've even heard horror stories from other parents about the Special Needs class's teacher yelling at the handicapped children constantly. This school allows little to NO parent involvement... for the mere fact that they don't want parents around to see how flawed their school is. If you have an option. DO NOT send your child here. I will be removing mine in favor of homeschooling or getting special permission to place them at Honduras ASAP.
