Open Quote We absolutely LOVE Frances Nungester Elementary... Everyone on staff has a love for children and support their education... We have 2 children in this school and they both have really progressed in all areas of education... Don't be fooled by our being a Title 1 school, the teachers here love what they do and they TEACH all o their students... From the principal to the cafeteria workers, including the custodians, everyone here at FNES is blessed!!!! Close Quote

Open Quote Love this school! Great teachers, staff, and administration! Don't let someone else perception sway you - go in visit, meet the people, get involved, and pay attention and you will see for yourself that this school is wonderful!

My son started kinder last year and I was hesitant - but I visited the school often, met the teachers, staff, and principal and love them! My daughter started PreK this year at FNES and she loves it! Test scores are up, higher than some of the better rated schools in the district! Get involved, parent involvement is a little low, but growing -- can only make this place a better place to be -- give it a chance, you might just love it! 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.
