Open Quote Countee Cullen Elementary is a great school. As a child I attended Cullen. My son graduated 8th grade there as well. the quality of education is still just as great as it was when I attended over 25 years ago. Cullen has continued to make AYP for the last 4 to 5 years 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.
