Open Quote I love this school! The tearchers there are so wonderful. My daughter has had a pretty rough start in life with the start of the passing of her father. The teachers there work with her and have helpedup and become a responsible child. I could go on about this school and how terrific they work together as a team to help each child there grow and learn with morals. 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.
