Open Quote I have had 2 kids attend-one currently-with the most positive of results. These kids were not good candidates for the super large community high school, got lost in there system, were not receiving the help nor attention they needed to succeed. The smaller, experiential setting of NW Passage has been the answer for our family. Staff are very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to help their students and families. I would highly recommend anyone looking for alternatives to public education to look into experiential education. 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.
