Open Quote I am a student at Sonora High School, and it is an absolutely extraordinary school! The International Bachelorette Program is wonderful, and I have learned so much from the honors classes that come with the diploma. The faculty and staff is unbelievably amazing, they make the material fun and easy to understand, and really push us to do our best. I am especially fond of the science teachers! They are so into what they teach, that you can't help but have fun in the lab!!! I can't forget to mention the extracurriculars! IMPACT, Best Buds, Science Olympiad, CSF, Scuba! I am confident that being a Sonora student has given me the knowledge and experience I will need while attending a university and following my career path. I can't even express the joy and pride I feel to be attending such an amazing school!:) 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.
