Open Quote This is absolutely the hardest working school I have ever been associated with, either as a parent, teacher, or student. This school truly prepares it's students for success and the scores prove it and the faces of the students beaming with pride emphasis it. I simply love being a part of the process that takes struggling, underprivileged students and helps mold them into students who score commended on the state's mandatory and ridiculously long and difficult tests. It makes my day!!!Go LACY!!! 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.
