Open Quote I like this school. It needs a social worker and hisd needs more resources for autistic and mentally impaired, physically impaired and children with emotional trauma. This school could be so much better if we could invest in behavioral therapists, autism specialists and social workers. 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.
