Open Quote I am currently a student at the Pittston Area Senior High School. From the start of my high school career I chose to go into the honors and ap classes, and my education has greatly been affected by this. This is a school that you get what you put into it. If you want slack by in the easiest classes they'll allow you to, but if choose to challenge yourself the teachers are very open and helpful. 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.
