Open Quote Heard wonderful things about this High school.
Would love for my daughter to be accepted for the 2020 school year as a ninth grade student.
She’ll love the diversity of the school since she been doing a lot of research on this High school since she been in 6th grade.
She is very smart and knows exactly what she wants out of her 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.
