Open Quote Weirdly enough I had a dream about my time in BW tinker school when I was in first and second grade. Honestly it was the best school I ever went to, the student to teacher ratio was fantastic and the environment was friendly and the teachers took their job seriously, and learning standards were very high. I still remember my first grade teachers name and the room that we were in as well as my second grade teacher. Very few schools have left a positive mark on me like BW Tinker School. My time there was almost 20 years ago, but I still have incredibly fond memories of it. 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.
