Open Quote I absolutely love the school. All the teachers are amazing and extremely helpful. I'm an athlete and love being on the teams and representing my school. Being in Geometry Honors is difficult but the teacher is awesome. I just love the school and it has a very good principal. 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.
