Open Quote This school has strong leadership, skilled teachers, and offers more challenging work for kids who need more. Each classroom has five mini computers that the children can work on their math facts at whatever level that child is on. Strong accelerated reader program that starts in kindergarten. Very open and welcoming to parent involvement. It is a small school in that it is k-2nd grade. It is fun! Both my kids have loved UHE! 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.
