Open Quote No notifications about transition time change from elementary to jr high, very unorganized, make sure you find out about the jr high starts earlier and gets out earlier because the school does not inform anyone, lot of bullies, parking is nuts, people park in fire zones, very chaotic school.

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.
