Open Quote I attended this school while it was simply "West Middle School." This school offered a Space and Technology class which was always a favorite of the students. The teachers were really dedicated to making sure students never fell behind, and always made time to help any student that asked. 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.
