Overall experience
We can't imagine better elementary school for kids - very kind teachers, great support for ESOL, nice family activities through whole year. Our kids (VPK, and 1-2 grade) made a huge progress in academics and English! Thank you Abel! and especially for mr.Horner, ms.Haslem, ms.Brown and ms. Claim. Close Quote

Open Quote Abel elementary provides time for students to work. I should know, I went there from kindergarten to 5th grade. That school makes you believe in yourself. All my old teachers were very excellent and taught me well. Now I have a great education. Thank you Abel. 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.
