Open Quote Graduate in 2002. Every time I think I've figured out the limits of what I gained from my OAS education, I'm wrong. OAS changes the way you go through life, face challenges and fears, and care for yourself and others. It's whole person education at it's best! 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.
