Open Quote My son has not enjoyed or liked going to school until he started attending Vandergriff. He started at Vandergriff in the middle of the 2nd grade. He has some special emotional and mental needs, and the school has been absolutely wonderful in listening to and working with us. He has grown and matured remarkably - I believe as a result of their attitudes and willingness to serve the STUDENT's needs. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. They have a lot of school spirit, and offer a variety of programs. The only complaints I have are their recording of absent and tardiness, and policy of not giving out homework before it is assigned. Examples: If I bring my son in late due to a doctor appt, he is marked as tardy - as opposed to, if I pull him out of school for an appt, nothing is recorded. If I know he will miss a day or so, they will not give us the work ahead of time to work on - we must wait until he returns to 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.
