Open Quote Just wanted to give a first-hand account of our experience with Homecroft. We have had all four of our children go there. All have received an excellent education with lots of personalized attention and affirmation from the teachers, administration, and staff.

It disappoints me that this web site give the school a low rating (at this viewing at least) based on an average of standardized test scores. One of the wonderful things about Homecroft is that the school does such a great job of welcoming in students from different cultures that there are quite a few international students who go there. This is part of what we love about the school, but it also means that the average scores are a bit lower - since students from other countries will generally not score as well on those sorts of tests until they are more comfortable with English.

In any case, I know from my older two children that they and their friends from Homecroft have been very well prepared to excel at advance classes as they moved on to the middle school and high school level.

Bottom line - not only will your kids receive an excellent education at Homecroft, but they will also receive lessons in character and good citizenship from a staff who truly cares. 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.
