Open Quote Our child is in 4th grade, and has attended Witter Ranch since Kindergarten. His teachers are all fantastic. His kindergarten teacher was so loving and kind and great with the children. She instilled a feeling of happiness for learning in the child that is carrying him through life. It's a shame the principal is not up to the same high standards as the teacher. She has no social skills. She is rude to the children when speaking to them. Fortunately that isn't often. 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.
