Open Quote Some people have a negative perception of Hachensack High School(HHS), but my opinion is that they are certainly doing something well. If you look at the quality of academic performance,scores prove proficiency. Hackensack teachers are usually experienced with a Master degree in Teaching. In addition, HHS sets the bar for the institution of education promoting freedom and equality to all walks of life. 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.
