Open Quote I've had nothing but good experiences for my children at Sand Creek Elementary. I've had kids in attendance there for the past 6 years. The teachers are great and they have great family involvement opportunities. The communication from the school is wonderful too, I love getting the updates on Facebook and the school website is always updated. Only down fall is the front office...the young lady is AWESOME, but the one who works the front desk comes across really rude and unfriendly. 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.
