Open Quote this school is absolutely terrible! the principal had to get fired! students going to jail everyday! what is going on. i go to southwest and i see ALOT of fights everyday! my behavior was great until i got into southwest. i stopped listening to the teachers. my mom had to keep coming to the school. this is my first year and im in seventh grade. i had to get switched to a different classroom for the rest of the year. and im doing a little bit better. all im saying is that please don't go!

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.
