Open Quote Amazing School! Wonderful opportunity for my child to be there. Close Quote

Open Quote Clearly a higher quality of smart and motivated teachers than other schools. All the teachers are accessible and concerned about each student. It's all about LEARNING, and many teachers allow students to re-take tests to allow them to improve their scores.

We really couldn't be any happier with the whole middle school experience. Close Quote

Open Quote I learned so much at James Weldon Johnson, there were so many outstanding teachers. I am now at a college prep high school and other James weldon kids and myself are beyond prepared. James Weldon Johnson had great academics and a comfortable and fun atmosphere. 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.
