Open Quote Great school with excellent parent involvement and activities. Awesome teachers, especially Miss Spencer in 5th grade. She is always going above and beyond for the kids and both of my kids thrived in her class. Chenal is definitely a school worth considering if you live in the area! 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.
