Open Quote Our family was new to the area for the school year of 09-10 and have to say that I was not happy when my children were drafted to Berta Weathersbee. After one year in the school, I am very happy with the principal, teachers. Mrs. Whitley was a great 2nd grade teacher. My son has also enjoyed 5th grade with Mrs. Buchanan. They have several programs at the school which my children participated in. Chorus was fabulous and loved their performance. My child also participated in a school play. They teach kids great qualities. The teachers in 5th grade worked hard so that the kids learned their skills and were able to pass the CRCT. My son passed the CRCT!! This was a smaller school so our children got more attention which always helps!! 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.
