Open Quote this school is literally the worst. not only am i a student, but they treat us like animals. i can’t even say i am able to feel safe at my own school. all the staff are so controlling over everyone, and will get kids in trouble over nothing or maybe even suspend them. i am so glad i’m on my final year at randy. if anyone decides to send their child to randy, be prepared for a lot of stuff. but just DONT SEND THEM TO THIS SCHOOL 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.
