Open Quote The Hurley's mission is dual immersion bilingual education in English and Spanish. I have 2 kids there and despite no Spanish spoken at home, they're really learning to speak, read and write in 2 languages, so it works. I'm also learning some Spanish by osmosis, which is cool. There is also a very committed school community. We are working to strengthen the challenge work available to offer a kind of in-school AWC experience to challenge kids at whatever level they require, and to give optional additional independent project work in language arts and math in addition to the standard BPS curriculum.

We're very happy with the school and with the school community; the teachers and principal are responsive, and there are a lot of involved families working together to help the school. I'd give it 5 stars but leave one off to indicate that it's not perfect, but continues to improve year by year. 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.
