Open Quote I feel that this school is racist. There are only a small portion of African American teachers. There have been rumors that teachers gossip in teacher's lounge daily about parents and students. I recently had a visit there. The administrative assistants were totally unprofessional. They ignored me while they were having a conversation among themselves. I had to wait about five minutes before I was acknowledged by them. Also the principal, assistant principal and guidance counselors tends to take the side of the teacher not having fair judgement
regarding parent's concern about their child or what's in the best interest of the student. I would not recommend this school.
It is the worst school in Gaston County School systems. 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.
