Open Quote This school as a whole is great. There is nothing about this school that I do not like. If Peter Gorman wants to close down a school it should be E.E. Waddell. Harding University is a school that has a graduating rank of 87% and E.E. Waddell has a graduating rank of a sadly 52%. Now that is a school that needs to be closed down. And if I worked with someone who's dead husbands name was on the school I wouldn't close it down either. But Harding University High School is a school with A LOT of history. And can Peter Gorman tell me why he is not closing any other magnet school. Is it because this school is a mostly African American school.

I WANT AN ANSWER PETER GORMAN.... WE ALL WANT AN ANSWER!!!!

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.
