Open Quote This school is horrible. There is a culture of violence, racism, bullying and homophobia at this school. The principal, assistant principal and dean are all racist. The school is located in a small good ole boy town mentality bubble, that breeds , support , tolerates , minimizes and provokes racism and homophobia. The students are very violent so there is a subculture of jump mentality, fights being posted to social media and snitches get stitches mob mentality. Racial and homophobic slurs and bullying are a norm amongst students. Discipline is not administered fairly or evenly amongst all students. If you are a student of color , your more likely to get harassed, treated unfairly by staff by way of not believing or taking your side, minimizing offenses committed towards you and giving you harsher consequences than students of non- color. In less than a year my oldest son was suspended for 5 day over a petty non violent offense not involving another person, searched multiple times for drugs, so they racial profile in Riverdale High. My younger son was constantly challenged to fight , called racial and homophobic slurs , suspended twice and had his backpack spat all over on by a young inbred racist pig. All of this seemed to be the norm and well tolerated , even minimized and excused by all school staff. Needless to say I removed my kiddos before the school year even ended and ultimately removed them from the district altogether. These public schools are horrible and not good enough for my kids to attend. 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.
