Open Quote The 2020 school year was the most challenging by far because of district wide school closures and my children having to learn from home. Without the support of the wonderful Cory Elementary staff and community I don’t think we would have persevered. Even with months of online learning and ongoing changes my children still thrived. My children are now beyond thrilled to be back in the classroom where they belong and love the in-person collaboration with their peers and teachers. Cory Elementary is a wonderful neighborhood elementary experience for kids from academics to peer relationships. 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.
