Open Quote This school is the armpit of the Jefferson County school system! The Principle, The Dean, and certain 7th grade counselors, including the school resource officer will be very lucky if they don't end up in a court of law?
It's sad because there are students and staff that are genuine. Unfortunately, The Leadership in this school couldn't get worse! It's Education at its most desperate scenario. The reviews of this school on other sites are too generous. We did not pull our student fast enough! The trouble started in week one. We had to go straight to the Police Dept. Immediately and on more than one occasion Re Moore middle school. It's Dangerous! This school does NOT deserve 1 Star. 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.
