Open Quote I was a student at this school. Constant fights, classroom disruptions, lack of respect for teachers and other students, violent, full of older teens who were troublemakers, and almost daily near sexual assaults on the bus made me one of the most withdrawn and depressed persons ever. Prior to being assigned to this horrible place, I was a very good student. So sad and demoralized all I could do is stare out the window in most classes. A total waste of a year of my life, most of it in fear. Sent to Hoggard next year after my parents moved for the express purpose of removing me from the very dangerous Virgo. Inducted into National Honor Society at Hoggard, made top honor roll each season and went on to Chapel Hill, Duke, and other schools. Not because of anything positive from Virgo as there was not one single positive attribute about this school. If you value your children’s lives and futures, avoid this dangerous and ill mannered student body. 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.
