Open Quote My granddaughters were enrolled at Jacob G. Smith this year and I, as a retired educator, was thoroughly impressed with this school. I visited the school whenever I was in Savannah and had a chance to observe the interaction of staff with the students and may I say the staff is awesome. The students are encouraged to be on best behavior at all times. I just wish my grandchildren would be able to spend another year at this 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.
