Open Quote 4-5 stars for history, english and music programs. They have some truely award winning teachers in these areas.

1 star for math and science. Main goal for these classes is to achieve maximum performance at the minimum level of competence to game their test scores and federal funding. They are clueless about why foreign scientists and technologists are coming to the US from europe, asia and south asia to eat our lunch. 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.
