Open Quote WES has a new Principal with a strong vision for education. His love for students, teachers and staff has greatly improved the morale and made this beautiful campus a place where everyone is welcome. Learning and community involvement has been his focus in his first two months of the new position. Students are smiling and skipping on the way to class and teachers feel less pressure and are doing a marvelous job. Awesome place to work and learn. 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.
