Open Quote This school needs to be completely changed. The parents need to be brought on board because they are a big part of the problem! Close Quote

Open Quote I feel sadly about how this school is projected over the Internet. What's the percentage on how many of these students go to college. How is there self esteem after seeing how poorly their school rank? 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.
