Open Quote The school is all about sports, they even have a very large "arena style" score board in their baseball field. Many students get away with very vile acts and teachers tend to not bat an eye to these occurrences. The bathrooms are not maintained well at all and in general, GCPS school portions are very small. Also the school is over crowded with 3000+ students and 30+ outdoor trailers. 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.
