Open Quote I was a former student of this school from 2001-2005 it was a good atmosphere with alot of pride. Teachers were great always showed respect and helped out everyone I always felt safe at this school as well. This school could always be one of the best in San Antonio if TX schools had focus on class all year than a test at the end of one. This school is deserves more credit than what most people give it.

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.
