Open Quote The new principle Rosemary Cruz is turning this beautifully nestled Clairemont school around. She's gained multiple grants including one to teach the "Eight Laws of Successful People. Costco has sponsored their reading program and even made sure all the students have backpacks. There's a general excitement about our neighborhood school and all the new changes thus far. We even have a meet up to all walk the kids into school on Wednesday. Another program that Mrs. Cruz started. I love dropping my son at his diverse TK class. His teacher has her masters and is focused on child lead learning that has my son asking me to help him research and chase down information and experiences he's interested in. I could not be more impressed with Ross and it's community of parents and teachers. 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.
