Open Quote Overall the school is very good yet the entire staff arrangement needs to be revamped to expel teachers who should not be allowed in an educational forum. The music director Mrs. Lutz is a mean spirited, uninspired lunatic who admits to being bi-polar. Does she need to continue to crush the hearts and minds of our youth before the school board takes notice? Shame on you Union County to allow this type of abuse! 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.
