Open Quote Shepardson is a wonderful school with great teachers and a wonderful new principle. The STEM curriculum is very appropriate for today's education and they also boast a full time School Counselor, Angela Mitchell, that the kids LOVE. She spends time in the classroom working on life skills, such as conflict resolution, and positive behavior support. Keep up the great work! 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.
