Open Quote We moved here last year from Ireland. The staff at Griffin could not have been more helpful. They were amazing! From making sure all the kids in his class could pronounce my son's tricky name, to double checking he was at the right level, and even helping us out to know what resources were available in the community. I feel very lucky both my kids are now at Griffin. 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.
