Open Quote This school is amazing!!! We came from the private school system of NYC and the education, staff and attention to detail here rivals the most expensive private schools out there. The remodeling project is a bit atrocious, but the rest of the package is tops! Pair the school with the lovely town of Westport and you quickly see the allure of city dwellers moving out to this seaside town. 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.
