Open Quote I found Northwood High School to be an above average school relative to many
of the other schools within that district. However, it left much to be desired
in the areas of cultural enlightenment and diversity awareness. I seem to
remember a distinct seating arrangement during my tenure as a student at
Northwood; one which left me wondering if this was the true face of "integreation" -
that being "separation within integration". All in all, I am glad that I had
an opportunity to experience my time at Northwood High. It certainly gave me
something to talk about as i try so desperately to co-exist with my west coast
colleagues. Liberal is as liberal does... 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.
