Open Quote You will not be disappointed with the quality of this school! The teachers are top rated, highly motivated environment and the PTA is STRONG. Our daughter attended Kindergarten here. I was room mother and involved in the PTA. We are moving because of my husband's job. We will miss the school and all it has to offer a young mind.
Thank You River Ridge! 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.
