Open Quote Our family loves Putnam Elementary school! This is one of the most diverse schools in Fort Collins. The curriculum is designed to meet students at their learning level, and every time I visit my son's classroom, the children are actively engaged in learning. Putnam also has an excellent behavioral management program; the children are respectful to one another, and I have great trust in both leadership and staff. Keep in mind that English language learners' abilities may not be best represented by standardized test scores. 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.
