Open Quote I was a student at J.O. Kelly MS back in 1996. I am proud to say I was one of the first students to attend this school. Principal Ford is amazing, she has a passion for this school that runs deep. I look back fondly at my days at JO Kelly. I am a very proud JO Kelly Knight! If I still lived in Arkansas, I would want my children to attend such a wonderful 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.
