Open Quote Most students who go to this school are unmotivated. Students are disruptive in class, and just all around disrespectful. Teachers were really trying to teach, but many of the students there make it impossible. Students feel unsafe and this school has the highest teacher turnover rate of any school in the district. Something needs to be done by the PA Dept. Education about the situation at this school to help the students who really want to learn. My child was a distinguished honor student who had to take remedial classes in college. Something is terribly wrong with this scenario! 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.
