Open Quote Prescott is a small school with a big heart. Thanks to a strong and involved parent group, the school is thriving and gets better and better each year. My 8-year-old son has been at Prescott since Pre-k and loves it. I’ve seen him grow so much academically and emotionally thanks to the teachers and administration who are responsive and caring. The art teacher/program is amazing. My son creates and studies art by Van Gosh, Matisse, Rousseau, Monet and Klimt. The school offers many extracurricular before-and-after school programs from yoga, music and chess—there is something for everyone. I feel lucky we have such great school in walking distance to our home. I recommending taking a tour of the school. Visit http://www.prescottparents.com/ for more details. 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.
