Open Quote I'm a graduate of Performing Arts High School CLASS OF 1950 . Being a student there made me feel like a budding star. I'm 85 now, and that self-confidence never fails me. @hattitudes1 Close Quote

Open Quote I came to this school as an incoming sophomore. Don't let the huge class size intimidate you, everyone here is super friendly. You're bound to make at least a friend. And the teachers are super helpful too, they offer tutoring in the library or the mezzanine. The academics are how you make most of it; I like the rigorous environment of my classes and thankfully, LaGuardia offers a huge array of AP classes. 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.
