Open Quote Thumbs up to Ms. Nelms,she did an awesome job turning this school around, before she came, Ms. Woodson had this school in terrible turmoil and the students were out of control, since Ms.Nelms came on board the school made a 360, I'm going to miss UHCS,its one of Newarks finest, and the staff is excellent! Big ups to Ms. Adi-Darko one of UHCS finest.Job well done Ms.Nelms!!!!! 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.
