Open Quote This school is most amazing. The teachers and school officials have been so kind and caring that immediately our child felt comfortable in and out of the classroom. Learning environment itself is nurturing and unrivaled. We are so glad that our child is a student at Altadena! Close Quote

Open Quote Kyrene Altadena is one of the best schools in the Phoenix area. The physical education classes are not required, but you can sign up for them. Also, the lunches do provide very healthy foods, there are tons of salads,fruits, etc. No, Altadena is not a "lock-down" kind of school. You have misunderstood the excellance of the school.

Open Quote Having just moved here from out of state, I am extremely disappointed in Altadena. Our student is in the 8th grade and does not have any Physical education classes. This is in direct contrast with the requirements of the last school district where it was required everyday. This does not promote good health.
The most disturbing part of the enrollment process was when I asked to have a tour of the campus and was told "No, this is a closed campus." I even made a point of asking if the student and I could tour after or before school and this same statement was made. How disturbing.
The last point is the "Lock down" that the students have during lunchtime. What kind of an environment does this create? Good nutrition does not make up for the uncomfortable environment.
My conclusion is that Altadena is a locked-down, state funded, penetentary instead of a nurturing and caring learning environment. Is this true? 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.
