Open Quote The school is completely overcrowded. There are way too many students in the school. The staff and teacher take little to no time to get to know the students. The school is more worried about SOL Advance pass rate than the health and welfare of its students. The school offers no balance to life and pushes kids to the point of where they break or just up to see who will survive. The school really doesn't teach the student, unfortunately, they are just assessing. If I had to do it over again I would not have picked this district to live in. 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.
