Open Quote The teacher's are excellent! They are great at what they do, help each individual student if they are struggling in that subject, and also make learning easier and sometimes even fun! There are many extracurricular activities and clubs for students to choose from. I love S.J. Welsh! Go Colts!!! 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.
