Open Quote This is my second year here and I have only made friends with two people. We just talk. We don't do anything more. It is hard to have any other friends because everyone has their group and isn't willing to let anyone in their group. Other wise is good. Even though I just returned to school after being out of town for three days, I had to take a math quiz even though I didn't learn anything about the subject. Because of this, I received a lower grade than I am comfortable with. One last thing, so far at me being in school only one out of the 5 teachers that I have seen today caught me up on what we were doing and gave me extra time to work on the assignment. Close Quote

Open Quote By far the worst school in Frisco ISD. We are transferring our son after only one year. Have loved all of the other Frisco schools. 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.
