Open Quote I am currently a senior (class of 2010) at Cholla High. This school isn't the best, but that doesn't mean it should be completely written off. I didn't strive, and work hard to be 15th in my class, for people to think of my education as worthless simply because of the school I attend. Being a student, the violence and drugs honestly isn't worst than any other school in Tusd. My Cousin attends Sabino and, she says its just as bad over there. Cholla doesn't kick students out if they don't meet a certain GPA, I bet if Cholla did, we would have better test scores, and an overall well rating as well. 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.
