Open Quote As a past teacher this school is amazing!!! They have great development and the staff all looks out for one another. The best part is the daily view out of the classroom huge windows that look upon the mountains. Tons of ways to make a change at the school from sports to technology and even health related aspects. Best school ever. 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.
