Open Quote The building is in rough shape but I beleive that is being addressed. I have a son who will be a junior in September and a daughter who will be a freshman. So far I have been pleased with the academics, the after school activities, and the teachers. My kids are both high achievers and so far so good. 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.
