Open Quote The Bates has been a safe and supportive environment for my 2 kids and we are looking forward to our 3rd starting K1 this Fall. One key advantage the Bates offers is that there is a 4th and 5th grade advanced work program; kids from other schools transfer in, so starting out at the Bates gives your child greater continuity. The onsite before and afterschool program avoids having to transport the kids multiple times. Parents in the lower grades are actively working to improve parent engagement and enjoy a supportive relationship with the principal and teachers. This is an improving school in Boston that welcomes parental involvement and is working hard to ensure the needs of a diverse student body are met. 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.
