Open Quote Our kids have been attending Ladera for the last 7 years. Ladera has an excellent staff/teachers! All of the teachers our kids have had over the years are fantastic! Two of our kiddos attending have IEPs, and the therapists have always been supportive and proactive, meeting our kids needs. Homework policy is minimal, following peer reviewed studies and current research. Ladera has a STEAM lab, music program, art program, sports, running club, robotics club, theatre arts, garden, PE program, and much more! We would recommend Ladera to any family looking into the school. Close Quote

Open Quote I just started working at Ladera and I am so impressed with the staff, students, and parents. It is a beautiful school with caring staff, involved parents, and wonderful students. Ladera is one of the smaller elementary schools in the area which helps gives it a more intimate feeling. An overall excellent school! 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.
