Open Quote Girls' High prepares you for college by offering classes that supply you with college credits at no cost. Being a student at Girls'High is a true experience. We have Spirit Day, Contest, Award assemblies,Freshman Day, Sophomore Day, Junior day, and Senior Day. They also have a variety of clubs that provides every student with support and a chance to share and make new friends. Girls' High also has something that no other high school does, and that is a Big Sister. Every Freshman that enters Girls' High is entitled a 'Big sister' that helps and supports them their first year there. They show you the do's and don'ts of the school so you won't ever feel like you don't belong. There is never a dull moment at Girls' High because everyone is family. 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.
