Open Quote My child was in the Aurora school system, put her in the 2nd grade at Vanguard Classical school in Aurora. Her excitment to learn and wanting to go to school hit an all time high. We are very pleased with the teachers and the enviroment. Highly recommend this school. Her ability to read, write and math skills have tripled in the present of this school. Great job Vanguard Classical school Close Quote

Open Quote Great education model, and the teacher/student ratio is low and therefore students get a lot attention. I really like the Classical Model, Singapore Math and Riggs Reading program. My kids came from a DPS school and we've been happy every year. if you live near the school I would recommend checking the school out and consider attending even if you have to choice in. With the new K-12 school opening, there will be several openings in the K-8 Lowry Campus 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.
