Open Quote Diamond Lakes has a friendly staff and they have lots of things to offer my children. Afterschool care, dance clubs, technology clubs, cooking club, etc. My children have been to various schools in this county but they seem the happiest at Diamond Lakes. 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.
