Open Quote This is our 3rd year at Pitner. I have 1 daughter in the gifted program and 1 in special ed. I feel that they do try very hard to accommodate my daughter's needs. Dr. Hosey is a wonderful principal. All schools need parent involvement to be their best. I feel that is more of what this school needs. 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.
