Open Quote I think MS#4 is great. My child attended this school for three years and she loved it as much as I did. The teachers were attentive and concerned with her future. There was excellent communication between them and myself. There were extracurricular programs available for her that she took full advantage of. She is now a student in one the best high schools in the country. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for an excellent public junior high school. It takes hard work on the students and parental participation but nothing worth anything comes free. 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.
