Open Quote This school has amazing teachers. I have really felt welcome and successful at this well run school. Lots of big open windows for light, with a view of aurora reservoir from many many windows. Gorgeous gym with awesome locker rooms. Best school I've been to. 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.
