Open Quote I'm in the 8th grade at Chestnut Middle School and today some people had come from Putnam to tell our 8th grade class about it and the whole time I was excited.
I knew Putnam was the best school around but the energy I felt was amazing.
I want to study to be a lawyer and what I saw for criminal justice was amazing,
The kids are 100% dedicated and so are the other kids from other shops.
They told us
"This is what you should take if you want to be a (career choice)."
They said they have 400 slots and 900 applied for Putnam.
That's crazy.
I want to go Putnam. :D 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.
