Open Quote We have attended Ashford Park Elementary for 6 years. Our oldest graduated this year and heads to middle school. Our youngest started PreK last year and Kindergarten this year. Our middle enters 5th grade this year. We love Ashford Park. The teachers are loving & firm but also patient & encouraging. Those character traits have made our children's elementary years wonderful beyond words. The parents are very involved and the PTA continues to grow and thrive. The foundation has enabled lots of extras for the children and teachers. If you want a little piece of paradise just walk into the doors of this precious 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.
