Open Quote I have been associated with this school for long time. Most people are not aware that the school exists. The teachers work well together and make certain every child gains. Just like with any relationship, there may be some disagreements. Northington always listens to complaints and handles them accordingly. 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.
