Open Quote West Woods school is great. The teachers and the principal give every opportunity to students, encourage them especially I love their math tools in making the kid learn math in every possible way. My son went to kindergarten and now he is in first grade. I really like his class teachers and in general all the teachers are great and friendly. The Principal is a nice, pleasant lady, excellent leader, but one thing I have to say is she is not keen in to Hygienic issues. The kids are sent to recess to play outside and immediately they are sent to lunch with out washing hands. The principal does not enforce the rule that the kids need to wipe or wash their hands. With lot of illness and viruses going on an elementary school kids need to be enforced with hygienic rules and conditions. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is a real gem that provides our children with great opportunities to learn and develop into strong students. The new principle gets things done! When an issue comes up she takes care of it. She is involved and so pleasant. The teachers and staff are friendly and really care. This school also brings the community together in a number of ways through the year. My son is only in first grade but I was pleasantly surprised how wonderful his kindergarten year was and now first grade year is. West woods Elementary school in Hamden is definitely a great place for our kids to get the elementary education. 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.
