Open Quote I am a former student studying to be a teacher, this school was horrible! thank god they reteach everything your first two years of college because i would have been lost. I just skated by my classes and felt pushed through the system without getting a education. This school's biggest focus my four years there was dress code, they have much bigger issues. As a parent myself now i will never send my child to any school in the deer valley district. 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.
