Open Quote I went to this school for four years over ten years ago, so it could be better by now. A LOT of small town political issues take place in this school that unfortunately involve the students. (I know this can take place anywhere, but this is a WHOLE other level!)

I graduated over ten years ago, and I have not been back since. I was involved in numerous extracurricular activities, but at the end of the day it all came down to who you were or who your family is. There was a handful of good teachers who were really genuine and engaging in their students, but for the most part, it SUCKED for lack of better words. No guidance at all whatsoever. I didn't even know we had a guidance counselor until I was a senior. Lol 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.
