Open Quote This school is OUT OF CONTROL!!! The students are very disrespectful. Students ran and yelled in the hall. The more you asked them to be quiet in the hall the louder they were. Even one of the home room teachers was no help. She was even loud walking her class in the hall. The AP and principal DID NOT help. All they care is about getting the test scores higher. If they did something about discipline, then maybe the scores would be higher. They didn't even give me positive feedback from teaching and the growth that I was able to show. I'm a former teacher and it was hard to teach because of this. I'm happily going to another district and school where I was told by several people ,for example parents, and an AP at the near by high school that I will be happy and they don't put up with students acting like that and the Administration is VERY SUPPORTIVE.

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.
