Open Quote Jennings is a great school in a great location. A lot of students live close and walk so the community is very nice. My son walks 5 minutes to school and has friends everywhere. The Jennings school area is becoming one of the best areas to live in Fairfield now that the new train station opened. The middle school is across the street and so is the library so location wise it is probably the best situated for an elementary school. Strong teachers and nice students. Great school for your kids to go to. 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.
