Open Quote You waste tremendous amounts of money, especially on the night program. Thousands for no work because no one shows up you waste more money in other areas. Close Quote

Open Quote I go to Schenectady High School. I would say it's the worst school i ever went to, there is so much gang violence, fighting, knife fights, and a whole lot more. I do not want be in this school, but i have to because i live in Schenectady school district. Close Quote

Open Quote I actually go to the school. There are plenty of distractions (violence, drugs, etc.) But if you focus on school and take advanced classes it is a very good school. 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.
