Open Quote The teachers and leaders of this school really love the students and families. They try very hard to meet everyone where they are and help them to be better. Also, this is the only school in Pittsburgh, maybe the state or country, that focuses on the Black community and history. 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.
