Open Quote Rainier Beach is a Great School
Im a Freshman there right now and the teachers really care about you and wants the best for you. The education system is really great its called IB program. Its a higher class better than Franklin or Cleveland high school education system. People think the school is ghetto, but it ain't that was from the past. Right now there are nice people there and there not even one shooting i ever heard from this school the first day of school no shooting or killing. If you haven't been there don't talk shit about it.

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.
