Open Quote It is an amazing school!:) The teachers are friendly (most of them), they are helpful, and pretty much involved. They take the time to make a difference in the students progress, without taking their roles for granted. We have been blessed to have my daughter start her early education in a wonderful school such as Los Penasquitos Elementary (very diverse). I hope we will continue to have the best education and attention as we do here:)YZ:). 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.
