Open Quote Neva Academy early college high school is really fun its small but its a good thing. compared to typical high schools which are normally overcrowded nova is not and since the classes are smaller all the teachers know who you are and how your doing in class and help you if you are bellow average. I would recomend this school to any student with high expectations of themselves. 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.
