Open Quote I have been pretty unimpressed with the school. The students don’t feel most of teachers care about them. Most all learning involves sitting in a boring classroom and taking notes and much time is wasted such as PE where students walk around in circles. As #1 in state, I find that very depressing for the teen students in WV. 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.
