Open Quote Atherton High School is amazing. Atherton is a 1 big diverse family. Race, sexual orientation, social class, religion, political views and etc do not matter to anyone at this school. Everyone is accepted for who they are. Bullying is not an issue at this school. Education standards are high. Atherton does not offer comprehensive classes unlike most schools. Atherton only has Honors, Ap, and the highest rated education program in the world which is the i.b. program. If your child wants to go to Atherton you should let them. 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.
