Open Quote As a full time teacher at MacArthur, I would never have my own children go to this school. I have tried to make a difference but with lack of support from Administrators, this will be my last year. Close Quote

Open Quote Absolutely horrific excuse of a school where liberal policy makers are destroying the education of already challenged military children by busing kids from off base ghettos to diversify the population. Try your experiment elsewhere. 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.
