Open Quote My kids went to Marco and spent three crucial years doing nothing. They were in acc classes and still did pretty much nothing. Looking back, I would never send them to Marco again. They did not learn crucial skills they need in high school. Marco did not prepare them at all. (They were straight A students at Marco, of course) I would definitely not recommend this school if your child's academics are your priority. They will not only not gain any skills, they will also loose any skills they had prior to going to Marco. Hope this helps. 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.
