Open Quote Bethune Academy in the worst school in Aldine. It should be closed. Test scores are consistently low. Staff is ineffective and unconcerned about student progress and welfare. The building is filthy except for the front office and it is located in a very dangerous area. Keeping this building open is a total waste of taxpayer dollars. 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.
