Open Quote Excelcior Elementary School is the absolute WORST choice if you have a child enrolling with Special Needs and an IEP. They do not have consistant staff so each year (for the previous 3 years now) they’ve had a different staff as the Special Education Teacher. They are also very judgemental and the health office is not able to give a disabled child any help. Furthermore the entire parking lot is a complete disaster so when one picks up &/or drops off a child with special needs at the correct door they are either stuck in a parking spot bc of the lanes of other parents who won’t move/stop in order for you to leave or you are literally stuck parking elsewhere due to the minimal amount of parking spaces. There is only 1 Handicapped spot by main door and that spot is still too far of a distance for a child that may have a harder time physically to even reach their schools ebtrance. The communication or lack there of is really an unfortunate negative aspect of this particular school. It was a sadly horrible experience for both my child & myself to go through & I wouldn’t recommend this school to any parent. 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.
