Open Quote My son is 5 and loves it here. He has excelled with Ms. Hayden and feels very comfortable at this school. They offer your child a lot of extra help should they need it. They also offer many after school activities. Parents are very involved with Freedom. 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.
