Open Quote Performance is trending down. Moorpark unified is staffed by hicks who all attend the same church. Essentially a club of old timers looking to protect their interests. Favoritism in school-based activities. Middling district in need of fresh leadership. 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.
