Open Quote This school is second to none. It has amazing, dedicated staff, the parents are down to earth and engaged and the kids are friendly. I actually moved to another school district in the city but requested to stay because Lincoln Eliot is really the hidden gem in Newton. The PTO is hard working and focused, the special education team is amazing, the educators are impressive, the janitors are awesome and the student body is beautifully diverse. We could not ask for more! 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.
