Open Quote I am a teacher elsewhere. My stepchildren attend and/or have attended Clarkston. The oldest, in college, writes like a middle school student. The youngest has limped through the special ed program without being educated in basic areas. She has no idea how unprepared she is. Neither of them have received any college counseling at all. I would say this school system wholeheartedly embraces mediocrity. 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.
