Open Quote A hidden gem. A small but mighty school with great teachers, active parents who actually volunteer, schoolwide events, field trips, enrichment after school programs, you name it. Every teacher knows my children's names, and it feels like a family. I am so glad we chose to live here and send our kids to Wolfpit. 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.
