Open Quote I went to that school from K-5th grade and it was a fantastic school. The teachers are all really nice, there's a lot of cool programs and things, great school overall. Lots of great memories in this school. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter is in the middle of her kindergarten year here and I couldn't be happier. The principal and the teaching staff really care and are fully engaged. It is a smaller school which allows a real sense of community. The principal knows all the kids names and has created an atmosphere that focuses on the whole child. They care about academics and my daughter has learned so much already but they also care about physical and emotional health. It is a wellness school so they really incorporate healthy living choices and there are a ton of extracurricular activities that reinforce this like jump rope club, running club, girls basketball......my five year old just participated in free before school yoga! I did a ton of research over schools and got into both Liberty and Dunn but went with my gut and chose Riffenburgh. 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.
