Open Quote We love this school. My second grader loves her teacher and her experience so far this year...she is challenged and couldn't say the same of Idaho/Kansas schools that she has attended. Principal is awesome. Not a single negative experience this entire school year! 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.
