Open Quote I go to Hickory Ridge Middle School and so far this year I have been pleased with the school and education that is taught. It is a fairly big school with many kids, and this school is very strict on rules. Overall I really like this school and I would go there next year for their eighth grade. 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.
