Open Quote I have seen my Son excel with Jeffco 21st Century Virtual Academy, more so than when he attended a local charter school. The teachers are very good at what they do, they really care about their students. He has gotten more assistance and help from his online teachers than he ever had while attending his last school.This year his grades have improved tremendously and I couldn't be more proud. His self-esteem has also grown. I'm thankful that Jeffco 21st Century virtual Academy is such a great school. 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.
