Open Quote Not a school for people of color. Principal and some of the teachers were not educated in diversity well enough. Terrible experiences as a person of color. Close Quote

Open Quote CTA is a great school with high standards and expectations. The staff is amazing and the atomshpere is top notch. I love the fact that it is a small school and my son is not a number. As you walk in the halls, every teacher knows him by name. You can't get that many places in Arizona. 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.
