Murdock Elementary School Reviews
I enrolled my twin 5 year olds in early kindergarten EAK and was shocked at orientation to find one teacher to 27 children with no helpers or assistance! Orientation was spent on going over homework assignments (they are five years old!) and my impression was this is day care not education. Any education would be done with homework. And the total school population was over 750 students for school made to accomadate 350students. I am looking at the quality of the education and its hard to imagine teaching 27 kids alone
