Open Quote Bursley Elementary is a fantastic school. The staff and teachers are amazing. My kids love to go to school everyday. I have a 17 year old who went to Bursley as well as a nine year old, seven year old and a five year old who all attend Bursley. Their teachers show they care for them by giving of their time and expertise to go above and beyond for our kids. My son's third grade teacher even came out on a Saturday to cheer for him at one of his swim meets this winter. The principal works closely with staff and parents to make the school the best that it can be. We are blessed to have our children at such a wonderful elementary 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.
