Open Quote Wonderful school located in the beautiful Town of Mt Laurel. The teachers are serious about teaching and about caring for your children. Lots of parental involvement and support. The administration takes the time to personally get to know the children and the parents. My daughter loves 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.
