Open Quote Their music department is one of the best in Virginia. They routinely score higher than even the magnet school for music. The have won the National Blue Ribbon award for three consecutive years. The also have a great advanced placement program and they were named in the top 500 schools in the nation by Newsweek magazine. I have had six children attend Menchville HS over the past decade, so I have a lot of familiarity with this school. I wouldn't hesitate to send another child to Menchville, but luckilly I don't have anymore to send. :) 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.
