Open Quote I love Carlson Elementary. The teachers, staff, and principal are the best! They truly make my child's experience at school engaging, challenging, and rewarding. The amount of support, advocacy, and genuine kind heartedness extends from everyone at the school, from the front office to the custodian. We love Clear Creek and are here to stay. 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.
