Open Quote My children have been enrolled in Hesse since Kindergarten. I really like the environment of the school. The leadership is engaged. The teachers are good - really good. My daughter was challenged in math. The teacher began to concentrate and work with her and her math grade has risen to a 91. I can't be more pleased. My child maintains a 90 average and continues to do well. As a parent, I could not be more pleased. 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.
