Open Quote I love this school! I have two high school aged children and the oldest attended Chestnut Log from 6-8 Grade and my youngest child is currently a 7th Grade student at CLMS. The Principal and Faculty are extremely professional, and care about my child. They work hard to assist all children, and always communicate with parents. 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.
