Open Quote I was dismayed to learn that students are able to use specific "helps" to do their work including tests and that another student was told by a teacher to take a final for a different student to be able to pass. This school is pushing kids through, trying to earn them credit that they have not truly earned. 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.
