Open Quote I've had two children go through James River. Great teachers, involved administration. Couldn't ask for more. Close Quote

Open Quote James River High School offers AP classes to ninth graders. One of the few schools in state that offers this level of rigor. The AP World Geography Teacher, Ms. Costello is the best teacher I have ever encountered. Truly cares about her students and is an amazing teacher and mentor. 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.
