Open Quote Excellent school, clubs, clubs and more clubs. Kids are fully vested in the school as well as teachers in the kids. It's a shame the ranking it gets. It's a great school. Close Quote

Open Quote Not sure where these rankings are coming from but Clarcona Elementary doesn't rank 2 out of 5. This school is one of the most stable schools when it comes to teachers/administration. They have an outstanding program and they are only a handful of elementary schools that hold accredidation status. 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.
