Open Quote I am currently attending this high school and I cannot wait to move this summer. Although the teachers are great for the most part and the athletic program is pretty good, the student body lacks diversity, and is very cliquey and not very accepting of anyone who is "different".I have experienced non-stop racism at this school. Both directly and indirectly. The ignorance of majority of the students can be extremely overwhelming and frustrating if you dont know how to handle it, or yourself. I am currently a junior at CB West, and I am moving back to where I just moved from two years ago, this summer. I cannot wait to get back to a place where people are less snooty and more accepting. Typically students dont want to move thier junior year because it will interfere with their senior year, but i can't wait to leave to have a better senior year somewhere else. 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.
