Open Quote As a former student of this school going to a prestigious liberal arts university, this school did not give me the skills I needed to succeed. The faculty are great, but it is the administration and its blatant sexism, racism, and lack of care for education that takes the cake.

The administration cares more about enforcing arbitrary dress code violations (only when a female student breaks the code I might add; male students have free reign) than it does educating students. Having your boxers or briefs showing is acceptable, but heaven forbid your bra strap slip.

I also heard many racist remarks during my years here that were never addressed by the administration. The student body, and even some members of the administration, would utter racial slurs and violent words at the slightest provocation. There is a reason this school is primarily white.

Really, though, it is the lack of education that bugs me the most. I did not learn effective writing skills. I was taught that a five paragraph essay was all that I needed in life. If it was not for the one research paper I had to write in English, I would have very little idea on how to write on a topic for more than two pages. The administration forces teachers to teach to the test, that is, to only follow the state standards and not to go above and beyond.

There is also a deep resentment of teaching sexual education to students, a subject much needed. We did not learn about female anatomy. We did not learn about ovulation or even how to maintain proper hygiene. We did not learn about foreskin or even the parts of genitalia. No, we were taught that premarital sex is the worst thing we could do to ourselves, especially as a female because then our value would diminish. 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.
