Open Quote I have had two children graduate and one is currently enrolled. Their preparation for college has been excellent. This seems to be due to the large number of AP courses the school offers. Teachers take these AP courses seriously since all AP students must take the AP exams, and they have achieved a very good record there. The science teachers seem especially gifted in inspiring students to consider science-related fields. My kids also report that their writing skills are very strong compared to other college students. Sports programs are so-so but the music program is quite strong. The school has a lot of socioeconomic and ethnic diversity but it seems that students feel comfortable here. Close Quote

Open Quote After I went to college I realized how hard high school was and how much of a joke college is. These teachers really prepare you for life if you take school seriously. 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.
