Open Quote Our daughter attended kindergarten at Mary Fay. We did not transfer her because we lucked out with a wonderful teacher, that has since retired. She had volunteer parents that helped out (1-3 parents every day), otherwise the class size would have been unworkable. The ratio of 22.2 to 1 listed on this site is inaccurate. My daughter's class had between 28 and 31 all year. This school is held together by the exceptional parent support from all the military spouses. The only reason the school has a PE program is because two parent volunteers taught the class for no pay. One of them has since moved. We had several conflicts with the staff at Mary Fay also. I found when I was volunteering that the only office staff members that were not rude and indignant were volunteers like myself. I witnessed children being talked down to and sometimes brought to tears. Remember, I'm talking about kindergarteners not middle schoolers. If you live on Camp Pendleton and Mary Fay is your only choice, I suggest you prepare to spend a lot of time volunteering at the school to ensure your child is getting a good education and not treated poorly. I know they will need someone to teach PE next year. 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.
