Open Quote my child switched into Orange Avenue half way through the school year. The move and transition to Orange Avenue was the BEST thing that could have happened. By the end of the year my child had learned to read and write sentences in kindergarten!!! My child has grown both mentally and socially at Orange Avenue. The staff is GREAT super friendly and caring and the community is even better. 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.
