Open Quote I have taught in seven elementary schools in the Tuscaloosa City Schools. Alberta is by far my favorite. Mrs. Parker, the principal, is an amazing, dedicated professional. The staff at Alberta is exceptional-- hardworking, creative, and very dedicated to the students.
The facility itself is top notch. It is clean and well decorated.
If I lived in the Alberta neighborhood I would be more than happy to have my child attend Alberta Elementary. 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.
