Open Quote Some of the teachers in this school can not handle the curriculum Some do not know how to use common sense methods to control their classes. There is a large population of special ed children in this school. The principal is unpopular and does not live in the North Hills community. The school district is re-districting the elementary schools and the school district is proposing to raise taxes. All of the private schools in this area have had the highest enrollment numbers in their respective school histories. 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.
