Open Quote Alvin Dunn, now La Mirada Academy is simply an amazing school.
The teachers are awesome and helpful, the class sizes are small.
They follow the International Baccalaureate program.
I feel like my kids are getting a comparable charter school experience for free. 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.
