Open Quote Ellis (Charles Ellis Montessori Academy) has recently become an application only school. It's an old school, very charming. My children have been going for 3 years now. They embrace all of the cultures that are a part of the school and include plenty of opportunities for the school community to get together. I chose to apply for Ellis after learning about the Montessori way of learning. 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.
