Open Quote Farragut Seems bad because of how it was handled in the news, But other than that the programs they present to the students are unique and one of a kind it has many programs likee Culinary Arts, Auto Mechanic, Graphic Design, Law, fashion Design, Cosmetology and Many more. The teachers are exelent they become not just your teachers but friends that can help you out on everyday problems 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.
