Open Quote I went to Ventana Vista for Kindergarten through 5th grade, and I will never forget all of the fun experiences that happened during my time there. Whether it be the friends I made, or the creative, fun, and flexible teaching method they used with each student. The staff and teachers were always nice, and my parents were able to easily check my progress. Not to mention it was in a carefree and safe environment. I loved this elementary school, and would recommend it to any kid (and their parents) who wants to have a good time while also getting an excellent education. 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.
