Open Quote My children have been at Sonoran Sky for almost 6 years. They are doing brilliantly academically and socially. I appreciate that the reading and math classes are "flex grouped" so that students are able to work at their ability level and stay with their peers. I also like the 1:1 technology ratio and the emphasis on science and engineering in the core subject areas. My son enjoys band twice a week and my daughter loves her art teacher. The administration is very open with parents and works well with teachers. The PTO is extremely active and supports a number of programs that don't exist anywhere else in Scottsdale. 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.
