Open Quote It's a horrible school, nasty and unhealthy lunches, racist kids, teachers that have no idea how to run a classroom. Principal and Admins will do nothing about bullying, they refuse to admit there is a problem. Special Ed teachers here will act kind in front of parents, then mistreat their students. Minority and or special needs kids will not have an easy time here. 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.
