Open Quote I have two children at Lafayette (3rd) and (1st) and their teachers have been OUTSTANDING! They know our children as individuals, are incredibly creative teachers and go above and beyond in the classroom and beyond. We feel so lucky to be part of a great parent community as well. Go Dolphins! 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.
