Open Quote The teachers at LES are well educated and provide the best education for my child. He's excited to go to school every day! Every single person on that staff cares for all the children in the building. We are very lucky to be able to call Larkspur Elementary "our" school! He'll remember his experience there the rest of his life because of how they are educating the "whole" child. 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.
