Open Quote This school, in my opinion, is the best public school in Boston. I'm so grateful that both of my girls have been educated here. The principal is fantastic, and she educated her kids at the Eliot. Both tested into Boston Latin School, as do most of the kids in the school. We love it. She's brought such great energy to the school, an education that rivals the best schools in the state and a one big family atmosphere. Despite the dramatic drop in the school digger rankings this year, I still think it's the best. My kids said their computers were freezing during the PARC test last year. besides that, nothing has really changed. I feel awful for the under performing schools and would love to see them succeed. They need Traci G., the principal from the Eliot. She's living proof that there's a model to rival the charter schools. Go Eliot! 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.
