Open Quote The elementary end of
West Wortham has the better of the teaching staff. I found the teachers in the middle school end gossip with the children as much as the teenagers themselves do, and they use language that I could never imagine a teacher using! Close Quote

Open Quote I am pleased with the education and opportunities my children receive here. The teachers and administration work hard to make sure the children have every chance to learn. Close Quote

Open Quote Teachers here do not teach the students. They want the books to do all the teaching for them. Some kids have questions and they just tell the kids to go back and read the book/chapter. The are ineffective and rude. 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.
