Open Quote This is by one of the worst schools in Tennessee. The bathrooms are covered in urine, the buses are just as bad as the bathrooms, most of the staff are rude/incompetent, the teachers are catty, the food is disgusting, and most of all the kids are extremely mean. Please, don't send your kid here. They will hate it as did I. 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.
