Open Quote My student has been very happy at Fuquay Varina High School. She has been very successful due in part to the school's working lunch, where she can get help on any of the assignments she is having trouble with. We are both excited about the new principal coming in. My son knew him when we were at Green Hope and he connected with the kids in fun way, but was still the authority. Go, Tigers!! 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.
