Open Quote This is a good school. I know that there are people who have issues with it, but I haven't heard of a school yet that someone somewhere doesn't have issues with. The teachers in the advanced classes care about the students try their best to teach them all regardless of the rules and regulations thrown on them by federal, state, and local know-it-alls.

Open Quote This school needs help. The principal doesn't like people at all and some of the teachers think that they can make up there own rules. 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.
