Open Quote This school has a lot of diversity and has many introductions to many different cultures. This school may not have the best academics scores, but the people here are very nice and this school has a safe friendly environment. Also, many students here work hard and really focus on their academics even if they may not be doing the best. This school takes the students academics very seriously and at the same time we have lots of fun here. Furthermore, the teachers here are awesome because they don;t be too strict or too easy. They truly care about their students and have a bond with them. They make sure that we fully understand what we're learning and is always open to any questions asked. I really love how compared to other schools, the people here don't judge you and there is so much diversity that I see lots of people go in groups with completely different ethnicity. 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.
