Open Quote I think that if a school be considered for the top ten school in the state we must make sure every stakeholder takes part in this. I have a daughter at Poe and I will continue to push for the mark of excellence across the board. We can never relax and think that the work is to challenging for our students. If teachers are not keeping up with their part some one has to say something and I will. Lets try to move up from ten its to crowded here. There is more room at the top. 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.
