Open Quote San Rafael has had a major turnaround in recent years - the Dual Language Immersion program is a success, the school has received a California Distinguished School Award, and test scores have gone up considerably. None of this reflects the wonderful community of students, parents, teachers and administrators that make up this school. Although the district has its issues, the San Rafael Community works tirelessly to make up any shortfalls - through both fundraising and volunteering - including creating an on-campus art studio, computer lab, annual school musical, and hiring classroom aides and a P.E. teacher.

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.
