Open Quote My kids have been in the HPS system for about 6 years at Bear Path. I have got to say that the school has gone down hill. Don't get me wrong the teachers and the Nurse are great. Its the Principal and the other staff that brings the school down. Bending over backwards and giving in to every complaint. I would have more respect for Him if he had a set of balls and stood up to the ?entitled parents. 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.
