Open Quote As an alumni, my children are the 3rd generation to attended Walker/Northside school. We love our community and would rather attend no other schools. Close Quote

Open Quote THE STUDENTS DO NOT GET THE EDUCATION THAT THEY NEED NOR THE TESTING FOR SPECIAL NEEDS. THE TEACHERS ARE NOT EDUCATED TO LOOK FOR STUDENT ILLNESS DURING CLASS TIME NOR HAVE THE TEACHING NEEDS/DESIRE, JUST DRAWING A PAYCHECK. 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.
