Open Quote Excellent school!! Close Quote

Open Quote Avoid this High School, if possible! The elementary school, though not what it used to be, is at least average to slightly above average. The High School is a disaster. Apathetic, overpaid teachers and an invisible principal who allows the teachers to do whatever suits their schedule and mood. Nobody is running this school. The teachers have a VERY LIBERAL sick policy and seem to be able to treat students in a very disrespectful way, with no consequences. This school is all about the administrators (who are below par) and the teachers. Student's needs do not seem to enter into the equation. The school rankings have suffered over the years due to over-inflated school budget and too many unqualified internal promotions. Beware before buying here--house prices are sure to plummet given the decline in the quality of this school system. 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.
