Open Quote Used to be one the top five High Schools in the State. Now the worst High School in Hammond, might be the worst in Lake County. Hope they can turn it around, bad leadership from the 60's through the 90's did not realize that their demographic was changing. Tried to hold on to glory days too long and did not meet the needs of their current students 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.
