Open Quote great school go patriots Close Quote

Open Quote Just a few short years ago, WEHS wasn't able to offer the advanced classes my two older children needed. However, in recent years technology has exploded in this school and students are able to take distance learning courses either through independant study or through a video course (live teacher streamed into the classroom). In a small rural school where demand for classes exceeds teacher availability, WEHS has carved a path to meets its students needs. It still lacks in the ARTs, but again, some of these classes are available through distance learning. The school is clean and the faculty cares. 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.
