Open Quote Sawgrass Lake is a great school. All 3 of our older children attended Sawgrass for elementary school. All three are top rank in their high schools now. They got a great foundation at Sawgrass. Our youngest is there now. It's a well run school. The low ratings on this site are not representative of the school. 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.
