Open Quote Under Principal Jacobs' skillful guidance, Waverly continues to outperform in every way, from the warm and nurturing student culture, the enthusiastic parent involvement and the commitment to excellence of the teaching staff (for the most part). I anticipate Waverly to continue to be the top elementary school in Hoco for many generations to come due to the strong foundation Jacobs is laying at our school. 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.
