Open Quote We have moved from SE Boise (Riverside elementary) and my son entered 5th grade here. Two weeks into the school year when asked how is he finding the new school he made a statement "I feel that teachers here are more about the kids than about the scores". That tells you a lot coming from a 10 year old. Scores do not mean much when it comes to acquiring tools for success and being in a nurturing enviroment. Both of our kids thrive and love going to school now. We could not be happier with the change and I am glad my view of schools based on the score has changed. 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.
