Open Quote Very good teachers! Just make sure to take honors and AP. Close Quote


by a parent
Monday, January 28, 2013

Open Quote Mediocre, self-centered teachers without a serious degree of engagement with the students, and an inability to apply modern pedagogy. Many lower class students with behavior problems in respect, courtesy and beligerance. Principal is not engaged. Overemphasis on Fine Arts with a tremendous naivety to realize Fine Arts do not pay the bills or create a leadership position for a country; science, math and engineering do and they are insufficiently emphasized. Less than 50% of the students are proficient in math, reading, science by WESTEST. How in the hell can School Digger give this school such a high rating. School Digger has absolutely no credibility.

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.
