Open Quote Every teacher I had at that school was motivating, caring, and inspiring. They are the ones who set the foundation for my success, and I attribute much of what I know to their skill. I was in the program "Project CHILD" but I'm not sure if it stuck around. It was the most brilliant concept for an Elementary school. I truly hope that the program is still in use because I could not have soared in English or come to understand Algebra without it. 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.
