Open Quote As parents of students at Tara we have been very pleased with their progress there and also with the teachers they have had through their experiences. We have also had foster children attending there and they have always had a good experience at the school and earned good grades.
Dr. Foust was always a fair, kind principal who had the best interest of the children in mind. We look forward to getting to know our new principal this coming year, Steve Royce.
Thank you Tara teachers and all the people who work at Tara. 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.
