Open Quote Was a fun environment to learn with really smart teachers, especially the science teachers. Understand that you won't get a good education even there are good teachers. It is you that has to put in the work. That's why slackers are giving it 1 star ratings. Close Quote

Open Quote Thomas S. Wootton High School is one of the best high schools in the State of Maryland, it consistently achieves top academic top scores along with a thriving environment which supports many diverse student interests via student clubs, theatre, music, and sports. The Wootton administration is very serious about fostering an environment for students to do well. Parents are very involved in making sure Wootton stays on the top of its game. The student composition at Wootton tend to come from very well educated and upper middle class if not wealthy backgrounds. We looked at several of the "W" high schools and found there are more students at Wootton who are driven to do well through merit but are also more down to earth. Intelligence, creativity in solving complex problems, and hard work is valued. There is less of a problem with distractions such as "designer drugs", snobbery, and bullying that permeate some of the other schools. 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.
