Open Quote I'm not sure how much this school has changed, but I dread going to this place. I came in as a freshman in 2001, and left before my first year was over. I encountered way too many gang fights during school hours. Chased by random people outside of campus because the way I dressed. During lunch I always stayed in the library because every day it seemed like there was another fight in the lunch room. My parents went to Tilden as a kid, but so much has changed from that time. I wouldn't dare step foot in this school again. Value for my life, and for my education. 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.
