Open Quote Very disappointed! Some teachers will care about you and try to help you, while others just care about making their jobs easier. Please be careful when choosing classes. Also, the school just seems to care about stuffing the information into us as quickly as possible by putting us into many semester classes. 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.
