Open Quote I have experienced a first hand encounter with the school. I truly feel that Prien Lake Elem. is a great school, and their criteria is aswesome. Of course every shcool has flaws, but the major flaw that I had to experiences was with the principal. I find her to be very rude, and she sets a bad example for the children. She's not polite because she only greets certain children. She needs to lead more by example!! 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.
