Open Quote Does not support the student. I've had all of my kids go through Gaither high and the last two school years have been the worst I have ever seen. Something has changed in the higher ups...Principal and assistant principal and it has all been down hill from there. Would not recommend this school at all 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.
