Open Quote terrible school, a nightmare for anybody who is not a wealthy and well connected boulderite. Some teachers are ok. But some are simply horrible. My son was a student at this school for 4 years. I still have nightmares about the experience and know that others do too. 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.
