Open Quote If you have a child that is different from a middle to high class white child, your child will not fit in to this school and they will tell you that as well. Our child had never been trouble, had okay to decent grades, and generally got along with everyone; until he went to Northridge. Our child has gone to the school 8 months this school year, and we have yet to meet any of his teachers. The personnel I have met at the school: the principal, asst. principal and a few secretaries, are completely snobby and trust you as if you are beneath them. They will agree with what ever you have to say to your face but never follow through with anything. If you have a choice, DO NOT put your child in this 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.
