Open Quote Rock Quarry Elementary has provided an excellent learning environment for my children. One of the biggest differences between this school and many other schools in the Tuscaloosa City School System, is parent involvement. My children attended another local school for one year, and the difference between the two schools is enormous. 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.
