Open Quote Air Academy has a lot of opportunities and great teachers. However, because of the massive amount of students it can sometimes be hard to get into certain select sports or activities. Everyone is really nice and the school participates in Rachael's Challenge, an outreach program encouraging students to reach out to one another and break stereotypes. The only big problems is drugs. More than 20 kids kicked out in the 2010-2011 school year for black tar heroine- so much for a safer school on the Air Force base. 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.
