Open Quote I attended north central all 4 years of my high school career. I was the athletic, preppy, get along with everyone student. i took ap classes and honors classes through all 4 years. it was and will always be a great school. it might seem "ghetto" because of the neighborhood, but i ensure you it is one of the best schools in the greater spokane area. it offers great academic programs and options for students. the sports department is lacking but its still fair. give nc a shot. i did.

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.
