Open Quote THIS SCHOOL IS AMAZING. MY SON WENT THERE AND THIS SCHOOL IS FULL OF DEDICATED STAFF THAT ARE WILLING TO HELP AT ALL TIME. ALSO WESTERN HILL WON A CITIZENSHIP AWARD IN 1988 for its amazing safety patrol. personally i think that this website is written by snooty parents who think the only way to have a good education is pouring there life savings. western hill as good as a private school but with more heart.

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.
