Open Quote I am rating this school high so that it will get remodeled and have pretty flowers and fertilize grass like the other 4 schools have. Also to let the county know that they should rezone and split the apartment complex students given to FCHS with the other high schools in the district. this isn't fair and needs to be addressed before it is too late. DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT FCHS ANYMORE. WHERE IS THE ALUMNI? 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.
