Open Quote This is the best school ever!!! There are awesome teachers, awesome administrators, and awesome staff! There is almost no bullying at all throughout the school. Kindness, responsibility, school pride, and equality are highly valued. First Colony middle school is also very diverse.
There are also a lot of amazing extra curricular activities! These range from things like Debate club and Sign language club, to NJHS, student council, and Honors art club. Close Quote

Open Quote Administration is very dismissive of bullying and parent/student rights. Disgrace to the public Texas Educational system. 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.
