Open Quote We are so grateful for Alcova Elementary School. We were having a very poor experience at another school in the area. Alcova has identified my childs needs and partnered with me to offer every resource available to him. In three months they have caught my son up in every area to include behavior. He looks forward to going to school now. The administration is wonderful! 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.
