Open Quote As a former FB Player, I can't say enough good things about Coach Buddy Anderson and his staff. They are good men and role models. If I have a son I'd love for him to play for him & his staff. Close Quote

Open Quote I graduated in class of 2009-2010 and in the last 4 years of me being there, the quality of education went into a steep decline. It used to be a pretty decent place to grow and actually learn something but their heads are far too big to not spend all of their money on every shiny new gadget that comes out. The people here are not that nice and the teachers are rather condescending; there are probably only 10 teachers at this institution that are not full of "fluff". It's a pretty fake school.

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.
