Open Quote I have been at south arbor for two years and it defenitly deserves a 4 star rating. The teachers are really nice and try their best to help the students acheive. There is not to much drama and bullying going on in the school. There are many after school activites and sports to do for 5th through 8th grade. We are always doing cool social events like middle school mixers which give us an oppurtunity to meet other students like us. I defenitly reccomend this school though the wait line for enrollment may be long. Close Quote

Open Quote It's the dumbest school EVER! My child didn't learn a thing when she went there so we switched her out after the first marking period. 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.
