Open Quote I have to say i was disappointed with Betty Fairfax High. I had heard over and over that it was a great school,but i feel that they lack organization and fairness when it comes to some of their freshmen athletics. I have a daughter whom enjoys cheerleading . After trying out and making the team the girls were told they don't get to go to any away games and will be only cheering for at home freshman games. I feel that the freshman are made to feel like they are less important,they not only don't all get uniforms ,they aren't even allowed to all cheer at their freshman games because some of the JV cheerleaders wanted to cheer . The coaches excuse was the freshman girls weren't prepared. Maybe if the coach would stop cancelling there practices she would be more confident with there performance.If i had known what this school was like when it came to some of there athletics i would've sent my daughters to another school. I will definitely be looking at another school for my girls where they will feel just as important. 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.
