Open Quote I have a PreK3 student enrolled at this educational facility and while his teacher was exceptional, I found the administration as a whole to be a complete and utter disappointment. These individuals lack respect and empathy for the community of parents and children that they serve. It has been my experience that these individuals push and prod parents and students alike and then run and hide behind their fancy titles in an effort to present as educational professionals, when in fact they are not.

Open Quote My child has been enrolled in Highville Charter School since 2007. The education and experiences my son has received are far above the other schools in my neighborhood (Hamden). The family atmosphere is also a great benefit of being enrolled in HCS. I recommend Highville to all of my friends and family members. 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.
