Open Quote My niece just moved to Scarborough and I was surprise when I saw her schedule. She comes from another city in TX. She didn't pass her STAAR tests on May 2012. And she is an average students F, C, and B. I could not believe when I saw her Schedule. She currently taking AP and Pre-AP Classes. I am glad for my niece, but come on; I thought you have to have good grades in order to be in advance classes. This just confirms that this school doesn't really prepare you for the real world. For sure my daughter will not go there. I felt that if you get a free ride in high school. It will be very difficult to be successful in college. 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.
