Open Quote West Homer has been an excellent school for my daughter. She has loved her teachers, and learned lots of exciting things. She has been intrigued by so many new things, and we've never had a problem. The teachers and staff are always more than willing to help in any way, shape, or form. It is an excellent school with many opportunities for groups and children of all ages! 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.
