Open Quote Sam Hughes is a very small, caring environment. The school is over 80 years old and has a long history of being an excellent school. The parents are very supportive. Teachers work very hard to make the school a great place to learn. We have Chess, PE, Opening Minds Through the Arts, and great after school classes. I highly recommend Sam Hughes! 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.
