Open Quote Harlan is a wonderful school with caring, very qualified teachers and a very active and supportive principal,Dr. Coker, who loves the school and cares about the children in so many ways. She expects a lot from the teachers and the students. Therefore, the school indicates this in test scores and in behavior of the children and by her and the Harlan hiring committee's choice of teachers who work there. I have had grandchildren to attend there in times past under a different principal who was also a wonderful principal and they have achieved so much in their lives which began with being educated in their early elementary years at Harlan. They went on to college and one is still at UNA. The other has finished her masters and is in a fellowship program with the government. 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.
