Open Quote I love Sonoran Science Academy because they offer an excellent education to all of their students regardless of what each student is interested in. Two of my children are really into math and science but they are encouraged to excell at language arts, history, and and music. My oldest is a writer and excells in the drama/musical theatre program at SSA but she does very well in math and science because of the teachers and administration at SSA. When something needs to get done at SSA the parent association is there to help no matter what. There is no question that SSA is where my 3 children belong. 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.
