Open Quote Best principal I have ever known at this school or any other school. Great caring staff, and abundant programs for the kids, during and after! Close Quote

Open Quote Garrett Heights has changed so much in two years. I joined the PTA during the 2016-2017 school year, and since then, the school has gotten completely new leadership. It is transformed! My child will definitely be returning for the 2019-2020 school year. Sadly, the test scores are low because of weak leadership and low expectations over the years, but I have full confidence in the new principal and other school leaders that I have gotten to know. They are professional, passionate, and loving people who have already shown tremendous commitment to the school. I am excited to be part of this school community! 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.
