Open Quote Knolls is definitely on an upswing. The teachers and principal are incredible. My son loves this school and is excelling. I believe a big problem is that when you put a lot of the responsibility on the parents to check in on aeres and support their kids where they need it, it doesn’t happen in most instances. I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom and have the time to devote however, I do believe that as parents it is our responsibility to know what’s going on with our kids and help them when and where they may need it. I cannot express enough how much we love knolls. It’s a special little school. And let me also say, you can’t pay for these class sizes. 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.
