Open Quote I went to the Trotter school from Kindergarten until 3rd grade (when we moved away). I have nothing but fond memories. Now that I am a teacher myself, I often think back to my days at the Trotter School for inspiration. 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.
