Open Quote My child is in Second Grade and has been going to Copper Mesa since Kindergarten. CME is a wonderful school with highly educated and supportive teachers. Luan Ezra is an excellent principal that always puts students first. My child has always been happy and challenged at Copper Mesa. This school has a wide range of technology, math, science, social studies, writing and reading resources that are always current. Copper Mesa is a second home to our family and we couldn't be happier. 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.
