Open Quote As a parent of two Alvarado students and one graduate, I am very pleased with the education available at Alvarado. It is a small school FULL of caring teachers. Teachers use Columbia University's Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project to teach language arts. They also have started a math project, CGI, to teach math. Neither of the programs are complicated but I have learned how to write, right along side my daughter. I am a highly educated person, yet no one ever taught me what writers do in order to complete a story, essay, etc. As my son graduated and moved on to middle and high school, he has taken the basics he learned at Alvarado and successfully built a strong background in all academic areas. I am very pleased with my children's experience, now and in the past, at Alvarado. I hope that the new principal brings the school to even higher levels. 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.
