Open Quote This is school flat out lies about the teacher to student ratio. They include ALL staff, even the ones that never watch children, to get that ratio. The truth is they have 30+ kids in these classes, not 16. Cherry Creek is fantastic at deception though. 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.
