Open Quote This is the saddest school. Beginning from orientation in 6th grade till now, second semester of 8th grade. Unorganized unorganized and unorganized !! The staff is nice the education is subpar and I'm talking about the magnet I can only imagine the general population of the school. My son's love for learning has died 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.
