Open Quote Very caring and qualified teachers, administrators, and staff. The students do well here in all regards. They are given excellent resources and offered great programs at this school--social-emotional learning, gardening, the famous, wait-listed biolingual classrooms! Close Quote

Open Quote I don't know why I should be impressed by an organic garden (suggested by another writer). But I am impressed by Burgess-Peterson's test scores, classroom discipline and the overall responsiveness and commitment to success exhibited by the staff and administration. The facility is newer and is an attractive environment that is conducive for learning. Close Quote

Open Quote Burgess Peterson Academy is on the move to becoming one of the top elementary schools in the area. BPA has a lot to offer and has been making the news due to significant progress in improving test scores. Administrative accountability and parental involvement are key elements to BPA's success. Tour the school and the student's organic garden on campus and you will be impressed with this neighborhood gem. 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.
