Open Quote Clare Middle School is a place that reminds me of everything truly wrong with the American educational system. At first glance, it appears to be the ideal school with a helpful staff devoted to the student body. But then you really open your eyes, and discover the truth that Clare Middle school is nothing more than a school of lies, where students are bullied by staff and given punishment for trivial things while those students who commit open assault in a classroom and lunchroom get lesser punishments. You start to realize that Clare Middle School is a monolisk to how the American educational system is so broken, that even the best looking schools are really just closets opened wide for all their skeletons to see, and yet only those who would open their eyes can truly see said skeletons. Your children are not safe in this monkey gym excuse for a government facility. 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.
