Open Quote When we moved to New Haven to teach at Yale, we chose to send our kids to a public school, but NOT Worthington Hooker. John C Daniels is a Spanish- English dual language school, and so far we have been very pleased with it. My children come from an award winning, nationally recognized dual language school in the DC area, and I have to say they are happier and learning Spanish more efficiently at JCD than they did at their previous school. In addition to Spanish, the kids have an opportunity to take advantage of JCD's excellent music program.

Is JCD perfect? Of course not. But the teachers are committed and competent, the principal is a nationally recognized administrator, and more and more parents are getting involved in the school. I look forward to seeing Daniels garner more and more attention in the community for the success and well being of its students. 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.
