Open Quote It's getting there. Excellent choice for some kids, poor choice for other kids. If your child can't handle a middle school (D's and F's, behavior issues), then you'll love Bok! If your child is a straight A student, you and your child will love Bok. The average kids at times get a bum deal...just slip under the radar. Some bad kids that stick around all year that disrupt the class..it's annoying. Some of my favorite teachers left and were replaced my mediocre teachers- I don't like the chatty classroom and rudeness toward teachers...I should have went to Union. Now, I'm off to Frostproof for high school. I wouldn't go to Lake Wales if you paid me...If I didn't want to go to McLaughlin and chose Bok, then why would I want to go to Lake Wales with all the McLaughlin kids? 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.
