Open Quote I came from Bridgeport where the schools are terrible and my son was failing already in the first grade, I moved to this specific school district of Waterbury because this school is known for being the best in Waterbury. The one star rating just doesn't make any sense! My son passed and is going to second grade and loves his new school! 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.
