Open Quote ESUMS is a phenomenal school! I have two children who attend- one in the middle school and one in the high school. The things these kids are learning and the skills they are developing astound me! I didn't know how to build a robot or design and build an earthquake resistant structure when I was a kid- both things my kids are doing right now! They have advanced math courses and my high schooler has college credits already. The teachers and administrators are dedicated to their jobs and all of them seem to love what they do! Highly recommended! 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.
