I just read the student teacher ratio. It states its should be 15 students per teacher. My son class has 21 kids in it. I've have become very unhappy with bache in the last two years. I'm ready to move my son to another school very, very, very soon.

I don't feel that the school has enough academic programs for the children. I do not understand why there are hardly any extracurricular activitites. I feel that the overall involvement of the parents are extremely poor in attendance.
