Open Quote i went to school hear for 5 years. (K-4) Then i moved to Nebraska, where my grades improved drastically. I am now a Freshman in high school, and I wish I had gone to Hyannis Area Schools all my life. In bigger schools, they just push you through like a bunch of sheep, at my school, the teachers come to games, know your parents, and maybe even went to school with your grandparents. Also, in smaller schools, you don't have to worry about drugs or alcohol that much.
Thank you for your time,

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.
