Open Quote School is pretty crowded and principal doesn't care about the magnet program so it's not well funded. Kids skip class like its a regular thing and the honor program is a joke, lvl 2 and 3 fcat students are in it cus theres no lvl 4 or 5 (only a handful) 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.
