Open Quote It's a large public high school with all the "normal" issues facing a large public high school in the USA. It has good teacher, bad ones, and mediocre ones too. If your student is high achieving, then they will fair well anywhere.... It's survival of the fittest as it is a reflection of its community and population at large. 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.
