Open Quote We love Zach Elementary! The teachers and staff in every grade are fantastic. Love that we can ride our bikes or walk to Zach and all 3 surrounding neighborhood schools. Can't do that in a lot of places. By far a great experience and would not hesitate to send anyone I know there. 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.
