Open Quote This is the best elementary school in Little Rock. It’s what every school dreams of being like in the district. Mixed classes with every type of person and financial class represented. Didn’t get it’s success off shoe ins has done it with the students that are assigned (legitimately) to the school. Great PTA and volunteers with top notch staff and principle. Cammack Police Dept. sitting next door is a huge plus as well. 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.
