Open Quote Came from England and had heard some stories about American schooling,
fears admonished, this school and teaching staff are excellent, love it.
Daughter has just graduated from 5th grade, schooled there since Kindergarten, so sorry to leave, hope our 4 year old will get the same experience next year. 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.
