Open Quote We are very pleased with Shaffer Elementary. Our kids have been going through the grades there for years and we are nearly done. I'm sad to part ways soon. The teachers and administration have always been quick to address any concerns we have.

I like how Shaffer pulls from a variety of neighborhoods in the area, which gives kids experience in dealing with people who aren't exactly like them.

Parent involvement and volunteering is amazing. A real team effort between the parents and teachers. 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.
