Open Quote Vanderlyn is one of the best schools in Dekalb County. The school is very high in academic achievements and has many smart children. They do provide extra help for children who need it. We have had a good experience at this school and if we've had any problems, it was solved instantly. It's more than a school, the teachers, the parents, and the children are part of a wide community. My children loved going to class! The new principle has also added many extra activities after school. I would definitely recommend Vanderlyn Elementary as a great model for education for young children. 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.
