Open Quote Fondren has improved drastically in academics and in the fine arts area. I recently had the opportunity to attend a community meeting and was very proud at the past years accomplishments. The school has gone from a unacceptable school to recognized. As I finished eating I over heard a few parents speaking about their individual children's success in different competitions. I did not know Fondren had taken home several sweepstakes in the UIL competitions (beating Spring and Klein school district)throughout the school year. Fondren had very good band. The school had no graffiti and was overall clean. I feel that the school needs to be updated but overall it is very satisfactory. 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.
