Open Quote Sparkman is such an awesome school, I love it there! I'm a part of the Medical Academy and it has opened my eyes to the world of health care, I know for sure that there is *nothing* else I'd rather do with the rest of my life. The band, choir, theater, journalism, JROTC, and many many programs make it a fantastic place to go to 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.
