Open Quote Words can not explain how disgusting this school is. The administration is rude and disrespectful to teachers, parents, and students. Almost every faculty member is close minded with no respect for themselves or other. The students are the worst parent of this school. This school is in the heart of one of the best neighborhoods but the student act like they are from the middle of the hood. And some of them lie about their address and really do come from the hood with has a big part on others behavior there. This school is also not well kept, their are roaches and bugs everywhere, many students play disgusting pranks like put poop on the bathroom floor and hallway walls. The influence of other students also effect the quality of this school. Many students bring drugs and other dangers inside of this school and the faculty has no clue about it because the are too busy worrying about thing that do not need to be worried about. Honestly it doesn't get any worse than Ben Hill. Your child will hate everything about this school and you are better off putting them in a private school, or one of the actually good schools near Ben Hill such as Walker or Martinez Middle School. I am a student there and have been since the 6th grade, i am currently at the end of my 8th grade year, and i can tell you personally it is truly a horrible school. 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.
