Open Quote I absolutely love this school. Came from a highly rated elementary school that my older boys went to for 6 years and I can say Watergrass elementary is much better. My youngest started there in 2nd grade and is in his 3rd year. His grades went to excellent and is now on advanced class. The staff is just wonderful!!! 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.
