Open Quote My school is okay. I do believe there are problems with staff though. Some of them need to clean up their act. The school looks like a jail in my opinion. My friends and I are sick of seeing no windows and just a plain dark brown / grey brick building everyday for school. I like the classrooms when decorated and the teachers if they teach well and clearly, but some of our school just cares about the sports, test scores and their look from other schools perspectives. We think we're the greatest, but we're not. Honestly, we need some better staff, not be so cocky and try to be nice. 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.
