Open Quote the student body is a very diverse "society", but by being in a more rural area some students are "trapped" in the local area and only experience one culture which is their own. That leads to misunderstanding of other students. this makes up for about 35 percent of the schools population. Every year WHS hosts a culture fest which leads to stereotypical questions being asked that the 35 percentile sees on TV or hears from other students. This leads to hazing. i would strongly suggest a widened district for the school to include a wider variety of students 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.
