Open Quote The John Eager Howard team leads those scholars with love, dedication and professionalism every day. They are not given much to work with from the powers that be, but with what they get -- they work miracles EVERY DAY. They know their craft and they keep the children focused on learning and college prep. That is NO small task with the distractions and other major challenges the John Eager Howard family deals with daily. These rankings seem a bit skewed and I don't understand it much at all.

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.
