Clifton High School, Clifton, NJ.

CLIFTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Five students, all between ten and eleven years old, were detained after allegedly plotting to ’cause damage’ or ‘detonate a device’ at Clifton High School, authorities said.

According to authorities, teachers and administrative leaders found suspicious letters from the students claiming they were going to ‘attack’ the school. It has the largest student body in a single facility amongst high schools in New Jersey; Elizabeth High School had more students, but its students have been spread over multiple campuses.

As of the 2012–13 school year, the school had an enrollment of 3,274 students and 229.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 14.30:1.
