Open Quote A small school with small classes. Great teachers, They keep the parents well inform. I like that they treat there students like young adults. One of the few schools that I know of, Probably the only one that a student can graduate with an Associate Degree. We need more schools like Houston Academy for International Studies. HISD can not afford any more cut backs. If we want our children to succeed in our country.We need to put our tax dollars into our 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.
