Open Quote My son being going here for years now. He is currently a patrol (5th grader) at Symmes. Very proud to served and prouder as his parents! Symmes is a VERY GOOD school. They do care about your kids grades and WILL go out of their ways to help your children succeed. Any issues that you have, just bring it their attentions, they immediately took care of it. Teachers, staffs in front office, principal, the sheriff,...EVERYONE is nice, caring, and attentive!! If I have more kids...Symmes will DEFINITELY be my choice again. 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.
