Open Quote I have visited their kindergarten class and was very impressed with the teacher and her ability to engage and to keep the students engaged in a reading circle. The school was organized, pleasant and clean. Close Quote

Open Quote Character, Creativity, and Community. This is a school that helps each child develop as an individual while in a small nurturing community. Margaret Brent is the secret of Charles Village. A school which has 280 students grades, pre-k through 8th, has small class sizes that allows for one on one teacher contact. Margaret Brent teaches character education through its Lion Quest program. A program that helps children with team building and decision making. Creativity is something that Ms. Prince, the art teacher, loves to foster in her classes. Whether it is getting the students to help paint murals on lockers in the Ben Carson Reading Room or foster a love for creating ceramics, Ms. Prince is all about it. This year (2010-2011) Margaret Brent began Project Based Learning which has put the discovery and learning into our students hands. Great things are happening at Brent! 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.
