Open Quote This school inspire my child to read and be better at technologies. All teachers in James Workman has something that not other teachers do. Instead of making school boring they take it to the next level. They turns the classes into an adventure. One teacher uses classcraft.com to turn boring into adventure 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.
