Open Quote My husband and I got position in Harvard that's why we stayed in the US last year. We decided to rent an apartment in Belmont because of its high ranking elementary schools and we are very happy with our decision! Wellington is awesome! My son went to first grade without knowing even one english word! But I couldn't believe how much his english improved within a few months! At the end of the school he literally spoke natively! Before and After care were perfect as well. The students had a lot of fun together and with the staff. They are so nice and friendly! . The teachers and the principal were amazing! OMG... Wellington, you are the best! 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.
