Open Quote The best school in the School District of Philadelphia.
Pros - really smart kids, dedicated teachers, great diversity across the City.
Cons - overcrowded classrooms with over 30 in a class, Building is old and in desperate need of upgrade.
Unwillingness of politicians to fund the schools leads to no extra resources. The school succeeds because it is an academic magnet school and if you don't work, you don't get promoted. The students deserve a better school district. 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.
