Open Quote This school is a horrible school to go to. The teachers don't care, there are drugs everywhere, the curriculum here is sub-par, and it has as much potential as a cat as potential to fly. If you're a parent, stay away! This is coming from a student of SGHS who is about to move to a much better county. 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.
