Open Quote Very poor administration. Ignore basic problems by pretending they don't exist. Huntsville is a nice place to live but the education system is not what you would expect in such an educated area. Choose a county school, Home school or spend the money for a private school and save yourself the headache of dealing with this system. 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.
