Open Quote Both my girls attended West Towson and we were very impressed by the teachers, the principal, the staff, and the facilities. My younger daughter was advanced in both math and reading, but clearly more advanced with the math and we were impressed by how they responded. They found ways to enrich her reading and bring it up to the next level and they were also able to find a way for her to move forward in math beginning in 3rd grade. We loved that she wasn't left to her own devices. The culture of the school is one of kindness and generosity and anytime I volunteered there it was very common to observe acts of kindness. We will truly miss WTES! 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.
