Open Quote Heard is a school that fosters growth of young minds mentally, emotionally, and physically. My daughter loves her school and looks forward to going every day like it is a treat to get to go to school. This is a reflection of the environment, staff and curriculum.

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.
