Open Quote I Attended Excel Academy from 2005-2009 which then I graduated. I loved this school in 5th grade because I was in a "higher math class" then the grade I was actually in. The teachers were great and they were well trained. In 2006 when the administration changed everything went down the drain. Many of their best teachers either moved or their contracts "EXPIRED". Many of whoam were my favorite teachers that made me actually like school. This school became less of a challenge as the years passed by because you could not "fail". I mean this literaly, you could not fail, their grading system prevented this. The only sure way you could fail is if your the parent made the child repeat a grade, which I am sure no parent would want unless absolutely nessesary. This year my favorite middle school teacher is leaving making any connection I have with this...bad memory lost. I laugh at the thought of ever returning in this building. 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.
