Open Quote This is too high of a workload and has a toxic white supremacist attitude around everything. Close Quote

Open Quote This school does not invest in helping student that struggle. The teacher will not contact the parent letting them know that the student needs additional help. I complained to the principal and they just stated they appreciated the feedback. Noone followed up. I would not reccommend this school for minorities. They are treated differently and often overlooked. Close Quote

Open Quote Providence offers a variety of programs, including an engineering program, as well as AP courses that can earn students college credit. Providence High School offers academic excellence that is due to their exceptional teachers who care about their students, and who go beyond what is expected to ensure student success. 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.
