Open Quote As a parent we are sorry for the things that took place with Dr. Hurt. We love him and are expecting even greater things for Douglass. We are continuing to move forward and love you Ms. Hunter! We are strong at Douglass and still have the wonderful staff. So to all who are saying now, we told you it was still a bad school. I'm a proud parent at Douglass and am proud of the amazing programs that I'm allowing my child to take advantage of. 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.
