Open Quote Military Mom here. Overall the school teaching methods are first rate. However, if you have an individual concern the common theme is "WE have 2000 students here" and are unable to help you or your student. Math teacher upset summer homework was not completed by my son when we just arrived 2 weeks prior to school beginning from overseas. Math policy was vague concerning calculators and teacher faulted my son. Husband and I got involved with admin even school board. Outcome Math policy changed following year and my son got a C in class. He was a straight A student before and after this teacher. Bottom line no compassion. Quality education by mostly Master degreed teachers, but no positive thoughts about your kid here only emphasize taking AP classes so they can up their rating. If your kid has a problem with a teacher, personality clash, get involved with guidance counselor and move them out of the class. My easy going son thought he could handle but teacher was ruthless entire semester. Good news she did not ruin his academic scholarship to college of his choice. 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.
