Open Quote horrible school - the staff doesn't really care. They can't even handle the tough questions. This school should be torn down. Close Quote

Open Quote this is a lack luster school, teachers are lacking and don't care, admin is worse always explaining something off like it's not their problem. The school board isn't any better, none of these people could compete in a proper setting. 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.
