Open Quote I love how there are many spelling words each week, and not only to take home, but there's an extra list in class as well. Also, classroom reinforcement on reading is such a great motivation for children to read more enthusiastically. Homework is a combination of all the things that children have learned in class--I really like that. 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.
