Open Quote Your ranking appears to be based on misleading information. The students at Nestor are learning all their school subjects in two languages so in 2nd grade, when California used to administer the first State tests, Nestor students were taking a test in a language they had not yet studied. By the time they reach 5th grade the children from English-speaking families are quite fluent in Spanish and their friends from Spanish-speaking families are quite fluent in English. That's when their scores on State tests show the benefit of biliteracy. Those tests are being revised for the Common Core so there are no scores to compare right now. However, simple test scores are not enough to call a school good or bad. I have visited Nestor several times in the past year (my child is now grown) and I can attest to the amazing instruction happening in the classroom in both languages. 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.
