Open Quote This school is amazing. It gives every student an opportunity. Going here was my favorite because all the teachers would individually help you until you got it. It's also awesome with all the clubs and sports. Theres also an almost equal ethnicity from all races ( black, white, Mexican). The students are the best and very low bullying!!!! 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.
