Open Quote Graduated in 1964 and Great Bridge High is still one of Chesapeake's best schools. The teachers always took time to help us when I was a student there. I enjoyed going to school back in the good old days. Once a wildcat, always a wildcat! 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.
