Open Quote The teacher's are WONDERFUL. My only complaint would be the Counseling office and lack of professionalism. I hear this is a reoccurring problem through schools across the country. Considering the shape this country is, we can attribute part of the problem to this on going issue. 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.
