Open Quote I love this school! My daughter is in 1st grade and I have 2 other girls that have gone here as well (they are both grown). Waterloo School puts emphasis on math and reading as early as Kindergarten. My daughter was reading me books in Kindergarten as early as 1 month after starting. My child loves this school and I have not heard anything negative from any of my girls about their experience here. The staff knows each child by name and teaching is personalized. As soon as my child's first grade teacher realized she was ahead of the other students in math she gave her different homework from the other kids to challenge her. The school also has many other extra curricular programs as well, including art, computers and music among others. 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.
