Open Quote This is my son's first year in school. Every teacher, office worker, and the principal are personally involved with my child's school experience. They each know who he is and take the time to acknowledge him. He loves it and so do we! It is a challenge for him and he loves to meet those challenges. Definitely recommend! Close Quote

Open Quote Both of my children attended South Highlands K thru 5th grade. This school is fantastic! The Drama and Art department are out of this world! My oldest daughter recently graduated high school with Honors and a 4.7 grade point average and i'm sure that is due to the study habits she acquired during her elementary years at SHM. 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.
