Open Quote Very hard working school. So many changes have been made to keep it a highly respected school. The Football team is AMAZING, As well as the Marching band and other activities. The engineering program is very nice, and all of the teachers at the school know what they are doing. I would like to call out two AMAZING teachers: Mr. Scott and Mr. Womack. 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.
