Open Quote My son in is in the CORE knowledge program at La Cumbre and we could not be happier. He arrived mid-year and if you remember your middle school years, it is tough to be the new kid let alone during the middle of a year when friendships have been forged. Other kids welcomed him, teachers accommodated him getting him up to speed with current unit studies, office staff worked with us and his schedule, adjusting classes as we became accustomed to US schooling standards (we had been outside of the US for the former school year). Ongoing feedback from teachers, unsolicited and when asked. My son loves his school and thinks fondly of his classmates, that is a win-win when you are in middle school. 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.
