Open Quote This is our son's second year at Forest Avenue. He is in 2nd grade and we have had a great experience at this school. The Principal and staff are excellent/caring. The students are expected to excel academically, so hard work is required but many fun field trips and activities are planned/encouraged throughout the year. Diversity is also one of this school's strong attributes. Awesome school!!! 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.
