Open Quote The kids are all horrible there. So many fights, drugs, etc. The security is pathetic since they care more about busting people for cell phones than for drugs. Some of the teachers are good but some are dead awful. Not recomended 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.
