Open Quote i’m not one of the students that hates their school just to fit in, but this school is terrible. i mean, the kids are terrible raised, they stink, like actually smell bad, and it’s had numerous threats in the past few months from students. i mean last year 2 kids were playing with a gun trying to be gangster and killed eachother. everybody there is racist and the statistics speak for themselves. avoid going here if you can, because it’ll be miserable.

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.
