Open Quote My daughter went to all three years of middle school here. The staff has the child's best interest at heart also having so many Adult male hall monitor's I feel that my daughter was safe in their protection. They offer many opportunities. Great middle school with New faculty and an awesome Principal. Ms.Jackson! Now my son will be attending for the new 6th grade year! 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.
