Open Quote My daughter attends harry s truman and she loves it. Looking at score test results and teacher ratio salisbury is probably the best school in the Lehigh valley. I went to salisbury when I was a child and we were learning things way ahead other school districts. There never is any violence. If you want your kid to go to a good school. Salisbury is definitely the school district to look into. Teachers can spend more time with students. Allentown school is so over populated they are planning to build another building. 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.
