Open Quote Hello, I am a previous student of J.T.Alton Middle School. I attended this school for my sixth grade year. I'm not going to sugar coat this Middle school here was probably the worst year of my life. At most schools, a fight between two kids would be the talk of the year. But here you have kids getting beat up and in fights weekly, at least. Hell, I had to learn how to defend myself so I wouldn't get beat up. You also get a very large concentration of homophobism and racism here, and the teachers do nothing. One day I was in class and a kid yells a homophobic slur, and the teacher doesn't do anything, even though she clearly heard it. And if you have bad grades because of severe anxiety and sleep deprivation, sucks for you I guess, because none of the staff will care. I recommend going to probably any school within Hardin county but this one. 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.
