Open Quote Marley Park is a terrific school because of wonderful teachers like Ms. Frassetto and Mrs. Otsuji, who care about students and address parents' concerns. The Assistant Principal was also helpful when my kids were not cleared about receiving enough time to eat their lunch. She stepped in and clarified. My boys like the school and appreciate the safe environment that the school provides. One thing that we can benefit from more of is a variety of after school programs, especially, STEM programs and sport activities. Thank you to all the staff that work hard to make this a wonderful school! Close Quote

Open Quote Student to teacher ratio is too high which is resulting in the motivated children being "dumbed down". Pick up and drop off times are a catastrophe - not enough reasonable parking, rude crossing gaurds, ignorant teachers acting as traffic controllers - completely unorganized. Student sign out is un-secure. This school is a mess. 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.
