Open Quote The school administration and guidance departments do not care about student growth, bullying or communication with parents. One of the male teachers has had multiple complaints about his inappropriate behavior, yet nothing has been done. Sexual encounters between students are commonplace in bathrooms and areas where the cameras cannot see, and the drug situation is horrible...walking the halls between classes etc.
I will be getting my child out of this place as soon as possible. Close Quote

Open Quote I was a student at Countryside High, I started attending 3 months into school. The students are very rude and very self centered. The guidance office is not very helpful which one time I requested to see a guidance councilor and they never got back to me. I came from a school that where the teachers really cared about you at Countryside the teachers don't and its only a handful that does. I would not recommend this school to many people but for people that are self centered or not open to new friends and accepting new students this school is just right for you. Close Quote

Open Quote Just so much better than my old school in every way. Close Quote

Open Quote Countryside makes it far too easy for students to graduate. Based on the homework assignments and class scores of my step-son, he was able to glean grades that he didn't deserve. I would not recommend this school for any child pursuing higher education. If you have a child that is struggling, however, this school is the place to send them. You will see their grades improve, not through hard work and initiative, but through a lax grading system. 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.
