Open Quote I attended Western High School in the late 90's. I was blessed to have studied under many excellent teachers who I still remember in detail 10 - 12 years later. They were engaging, passionate, and they really cared about their students. There are many opportunities for students to get involved in extracurricular activities, both athletic and academic. I would without hesitation send my children there. 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.
