Open Quote Ellerhorst is a hidden gem in WCCUSD, and its quality is belied by the test scores. There are a number of factors that affect the overall test scores (like EL population and 3 self contained special ed classrooms) but that don't effect the overall quality of education. The kindergarten classrooms this year only have 17 kids per class! There is incredible parent involvement, with at least one parent a day volunteering in every primary class. The classes go on numerous field trips a year, and there's an awesome after school program including many enrichment classes like chess and cooking. It's a gorgeous campus and feels more like a private school than a public school in a low ranked district. 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.
