Open Quote Fabulous gifted program (Atheneum) is housed at Salem Hills. Kids in all classrooms benefit from the skills and training of the teachers in this program. Teachers in this school tend to know all the kids in the school, as do the physical education teacher and librarian. We had our kids at another Inver Grove Heights elementary school and prefer Salem because of the smaller size and individualized attention. 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.
