Open Quote Modesto High School offers an excellent education for the aspiring student, a plethora of sports and clubs, and a wide sense of community. Although some look down on the school because of its undesirable location, Modesto High is very secure. I have attended the school for four years and have never once encountered any of the rumored gang fights or shootings that some say Modesto High is notorious for. That is a lie. I have received a great education here from a wonderful staff of well-experienced and concerned teachers. The arts programs, including drama, dance, band, orchestra, and choir, are all outstanding. Each performance I see feels like a real professional show. Our sports teams are also very accomplished. The IB Program, similar, yet perhaps more demanding than AP classes, has taught me very much and has helped me find my way into a career that I will enjoy. 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.
