Open Quote Great school Close Quote


by a parent
Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Open Quote Hawthorne has a low student/teacher ratio which has been a true benefit to my son. The principle / vice principle team work well together and have really turned the school around. The school supports a very diverse community both economically and internationally as well as offering an inclusion program for special needs kids. They do a lot with very little. Test scores can be deceiving. It's a jewel. 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.
