Open Quote Swanson is full of dedicated, skilled and caring teachers. My son is doing amazing here due to the support he receives from everyone at Swanson. There is a community within this school that is hard to find. An absolute gem dropped in the public school system. 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.
