Open Quote We moved with in the county last year specifically so my kids could attend the Ola cluster of schools! We absolutely love the atmosphere of the school. As soon as you walk in the door, you feel welcome. My daughters both have great teachers and the rigor has been right on point. The personalized learning program has been great for my girls, as they are able to challenge themselves and work towards goals while learning about real life subjects. The front office staff is so nice and the principal and assistants are very hands on! We appreciate the community and family atmosphere that this school provides and we are thrilled to be a part of it! 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.
