Open Quote I am very pleased with the fine arts programs at Sun Valley. They still have music, library, band & art programs. I wish they still had a gifted program but the classroom teachers are adept at differentiating for all levels of learners. Great teachers and a supportive principal! 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.
