Open Quote Teachers at Stephenson Middle do not support the kids! Never anything positive to say to them. Teachers display outwardly that they don't want to be around the kids. They don't keep up with assignments in parent portal. They don't support the PTSA AND they don't try to engage kids in active learning. By the way they absolutely don't support their student athletes. 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.
