Open Quote I love this school! Amazing clubs and amazing people. You can find inspiration in every corner (or at least I did). We are a very spirited school too so bring your best out during FANTASTICS because the competitors' fire burns. On anther note lol the teachers are amazing and there's after school help as well. Most teachers are friendly and funny and can treat you as a buddy. Some are mean but they can teach which is good. I enjoyed my high school experience lots! Thanks Piedmont Hills :D 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.
