Open Quote I went to school here before moving to the Eastern Shore in 1997. They were teaching things in 6th grade that Gunpowder had taught their kids in 4th or 5th. Mrs. Lamont, Mrs. Savage, and Mr. Freeman(sp?) were some of the great teachers I had and will never forget! Thanks for the memories Gunpowder Beavers! 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.
