Open Quote This school needs help. The principals enforce low discipline! A student attempted to punch a teacher and she came back from the Principal's office with a lollipop. Also, a gifted and talented student signed their name on friend's arm (as it was requested) and the two students got detention for a week. Favoritism is obvious. The students with violent natures always get away with things because the security guards and top administrators show favor in them. The other students, however, get punished severely and ignored. I witnessed a student get threatened and 2 security guards walked past. They both failed to take actions. Help is very much needed. The students that don't care walk around like upperclassmen and the gifted students who care about everything in education get treated poorly. It would be grand if money could be granted to the district to make another high school and lengthen the academic technology. Thank you very much for reading this. I hope you can give any type of help for the students who want to have a bright education.

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.
