Open Quote My boys go to this high school and I can only say great things about the school. The principal is very engaged and very focused on the Standard of Excellence to improve from year to year. The Advanced Placement program offerings are AWESOME! The teachers are passionate about the material and about the students mastering the material. The school has many many clubs and athletic opportunities so there is something for everyone if you choose to be involved. The school is highly ranked in the state and a great springboard for success in college. Close Quote

Open Quote Great school with positive trends. Principle is very active, as opposed to most of the time kids not even knowing who their principle is. 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.
