Open Quote Education is poor, the teachers seem more focused on ridiculing students instead of actually teaching the material they get paid to teach. The Principal (Ms. Kibler) is consistently letting the football team off with warnings even when further punishment should be taken. Overall the school doesn't deserve the five stars they received.

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.
