Open Quote A typical public school, they emphasize favorable test scores (which anyone with binge/purge study habits can obtain) over the creative exploration and critical thought that leads to genuine intellectual gain. The town itself is a small, insular exurb that noticeably lacks diversity. As such, children (and adults for that matter) tend to sacrifice their individuality to the gods of mediocrity in exchange for the privilege to conform. All in all, it's a great place to be average.

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.
