Open Quote My son recently attended Bluff Park from 3rd grade through 5th grade. We moved to AL from MS. I have nothing but great things to say about the school and staff. My son received a quality education and great support from the school. There is a small student/teacher ratio and pleasant environment. 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.
