Open Quote We love Flatirons! Our second grader is having a super experience with his teachers and friends. This small school offers so much and has all of the perks of a small school that are disappearing from a lot of schools in Boulder - great support for learning differences, amazing opportunities for engagement in the arts and science, and small classes that foster a sense of community and kindness. The teachers know all of the kids and each supports them in unique and valuable ways. We love this 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.
