Open Quote This school is an example of what elementary education in America should be. The administration is effective, the teachers are well qualified and excited about their students and their job, and the parents are very involved in supporting the school. They have a wonderful art program and a free-standing science lab. They also have a stellar musical education program. This is a wonderful school! 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.
